I love Spring. I love that the first day of Spring here feels like Spring this year in Idyllwild. We spent a lot of the day outside. Bowden is getting ready to go the volleyball court with his bike.

Lucy on the trike.

Bowden and bike. He told me that he really likes his helmet. "Doesn't it match my bike?"

Lucy ran about.

Riding was not as fast.

She raced Bowden, and won, every time.

Jack played with balls, and Mama soaked up the sun.


Tell Bowden I think it is a cool helmet too!!

Gosh, Lucy's cute.
And speedy!!!

And because I forgot to type it on my zoo comment, that dress Rosie-Sharon made for her is beautiful! I'd like her to teach me how to make one. (If her blog wasn't defunct, I'd suggest she post a tutorial. In all her spare time...)

Brother Job texted his sweetheart, although we didn't know it was his sweetheart taking him away from us.

Summer in Florida

This is our fourth summer in Florida- a number that amazes me.  I still don't feel at home here, although  I know my way around.  I don't feel completely out of place in the supermarket, but I have this suspicion that everyone knows I'm not from here, and they know that they don't know me.  That special kind of paranoia belongs to the homesick, and even while I acknowledge its foolishness, I still feel it.
Summers- I may have mentioned this before- are the worst. 
     It's partly an issue of comfort, or rather, of discomfort.  The long summer days are hot and sticky, the bugs are ravenous and abundant, the plants are vindictive with thorns and poison, and the air itself is attempting to decompose your body 37% faster than air in dryer climes.*  If there is a spring or pool to soak yourself in, it's fine, pleasant, even, because there are no ticks in the water, and you can usually avoid mosquitoes under the water.  To Florida's credit, there are any nu…
