Ladybugs on the lawn
Pale green iris shoots poking through the dirt
Breezes lifting kites in the air
Soccer balls bouncing off the fence
Children drinking Slurpees on the front lawn
Shrimp skewers on the barbecue
The old familiar feeling of bike pedals under my feet
Spring has finally arrived!

It looks nicer up there than down here.

Makes me wanna sing that song (Mary Poppins)

Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height
Let's go fly a kite
And send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite

Congratulations on making it through winter!

It's cold and windy and stormy here.

I'm breaking the tenth commandment as I read this post... barbequed shrimp? slurpees?
I am trying not to make Homer's awful drooly noise!

I've really enjoyed reading your blog and I've borrowed a few Ethiopia photos (they're fabulous!) for desktop wallpaper.

Nothing brings joy to me like children reading. I don't know why that is but my heart smiled to see the picture of your girls. All the pictures are great.
