A Minute out of the Norm: Go For a Walk

Today is a much coveted day in March in the Midwest. It is mostly sunny.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s cold. There are still snow-piles throughout the neighborhood from the last snowstorm… but hey, at least we have our sidewalks back!

The boys and I were inside feeling rather gloomy. There was a little bit more arguing then usual between the two brothers, a little bit more yelling on my part.

So this afternoon for a change of pace we put on our jackets and shoes. My boys grabbed their new rain-boots from the Easter Bunny and we headed outdoors for a walk. I walked and they scooted on their scooters.

It raised our blood-pressure, got our hearts pumping and we enjoyed the sounds of new spring birds in the background, the smell of *very* wet grass, the sites of other children also forced out of the house by their mothers, I’m sure.

When we got home we walked around the yard to see the bulbs popping out of the ground & then they played together on the neighbor’s swing-set for a little bit. No, the weather wasn’t “perfect” but we made the most of it and came back inside feeling quite a bit better about our day.byLeanneonWednesday, March 26, 2008Military Life:,,
