About 2 weeks ago we returned from our trip only to find snow falling, by the time morning came by we had a fair amount. Enough heavy spring snow to drag the snow blower back out of the shed. Yesterday we had temps in the mid to upper 70′s and we got to sleep with the windows open.
The main bonus of open windows are the sounds of nature that come streaming in. Four nights this week we were awaken to the screech of the neighborhood mountain lion. A couple of these nights it was in the side yard and quite loud, the other nights he was in the neighborhood but not right under the window.
Wednesday was the last day of school for the girls and Tori and I both got to visit for Tasha’s 5th grade awards and I stayed a bit long to hang out. After Sierra’s lunch I got to have recess with her and some of her friends, it was a total hoot and I even played some 4 Square.
We had one of our famous “Pioneer Nights” on Thursday and instead of reading we did some round-robin story telling and some sing alongs. It was great to reconnect with the girls some. It had been awhile since we had one, and it felt great to get back into our quiet evenings together. We had thought about heading down to the cabin for the holiday weekend but after 2000 miles of driving just a short while ago we will stay home and do some home projects.
