It was April. My favorite month in Virginia.
The grass turns from brown to green.
The flower beds go from mulch to impatiens. Peonies pop up and surprise me.
Ivy goes from peanut to squish with personality to boot.
Jack goes from diapers to underwear.
I go from white to not as white.
Ev goes from nut to nutter. And carries on full conversations with worms and slugs as she carries them about the yard.
Wes goes from drone job to drone job.
Parties take place outdoors.
Jack adds ‘no’ to his vocabulary of ‘trash’. We rejoice and continue practicing using our words.
Car rides to the zoo. And over the hill to the donut shop by the spring.
Dinners outside on Main Street and some fabulous desserts at Jacks.
Love to you.
