It was April 

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.

Buds bud.

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.

Great month.

About A Story of Us

My grandparents 57th wedding anniversary and my first wedding anniversary motivated to journal the adventures life brought our way . I hope to amuse the friends and family I have all over the country and, when I am my grandmothers age, look back at what I have written and chuckle. It's been four years since I began and the snickers I bring myself as I look back propel me to write on. Cheers to the future and happy memories of the past.
