longing for summer


yesterday was a glorious 55 degrees.  we had melting, puddle splashing and mud!  sigh...it was wonderful.  and sadly today it is freezing, windy, bitter - yet beautifully sunny. so...the kids and i are having a "summer" day - no winter allowed! 

we made kites and flew (or kicked) them around the house.
we painted summer scenes (isn't ella's kite painting impressive)!
we looked at pictures from last summer at the beach (sigh...)
we are only reading books about spring and summer (how silly to skip any winter pages in these favorites)

we blew bubbles
we had a picnic in the living room. and now we are resting snuggled in blankets with hot chocolate. pretending is over...summer is far away...so we'll enjoy winter while it lasts!
