March: The Return of Winter
In March, we had several snowy days. The kids loved it, both because they got to play in the wet stuff and because they got to skip school. The puppy loves it, probably because he gets to play with his neighborhood dog buddies. The cat, however, is nonplussed. She was asking to go out by meowing one morning, but when she saw the snow outside, she paused, surveyed the wintry wonderland, and hissed long and loud at the white stuff before scooting back inside.
On March 22nd, we had the latest recorded snow in this area. The boys and their friends built a giant snow tunnel by hollowing out a ball. The weather warmed and it melted fairly quickly, but it made for a fun morning.
Also in March, Taylor pulled out his marble track again. After a while of not playing with it because it "wasn't as fun as he thought," he's discovered that he just wasn't quite ready for it. Now, he can build all sorts of workable tracks on his own and he's loving it.
Aric and Taylor started baseball practice this month and they are both doing great. We think they might turn into great pitchers and it's fun to see them learn this new skill.
Ascha, while inventorying her "owies" recently, found a mole on her knee. As I assured her it wasn't an injury, she solemnly said, "but it's just a pretend mole, because REAL moles build dirt houses."
