Great reminder today of something I have always known, but forget to practice:
If I tell the kids to go outside, they will complain and protest;
If I go outside, the kids will soon follow willingly & happily.
And it gets me out of the house.
Spring is peeking out at our house - we found one blooming crocus, forsythia full of buds, plum tree with blossoms ready to burst and lots of birdsong in the air.
