it's been a hunker down and catch up on school/house/adoption month -
and with the cold snap finally hitting, the kids have been a bit cooped up.
i yearn for the good old days where our backyard was beckoning
and the kids could get lost in their play for hours.
so, we'll just keep raking and scooping and drawing and planning -
and hopefully come this spring,
the grass will green up, the beds will be sown, trees will be planted and playstructures built.
apparently, we have to put in a very large, very strong swing set.
the kids won't stop swinging or growing -
so, i'm going with welded pipe like my grandpa had made when we were kids.
i hope everyone is keeping warm.
