Winter gave up, ...finally

Winter finally gave up around here.
"Can I get an AMEN!"

We loved the snow while it lasted. We truly savored the opportunities with the kids to point out what a winter sky looks like, capture snowflakes on our tongues, sip hot cocoa, and search for lost mittens over, and over, and over. Admittedly though, we’re glad spring is on its way.

We celebrated the newfound sunshine this week with a little time at the playground.
The sun occasionally slid out from behind clouds, granting a chance to pull out bikes and the scooter that Stella got for Christmas. She was like a pro on that thing. Quite honestly I envisioned her 10 years from now, tearing up skating ramps in California sunshine. Completely frustrated once we hit ‘trail dirt’, she drug her scooter the rest of the way up to the playground.

I can’t wait to watch them feed the ducks this summer, head out on family bike rides, and exhaust themselves at parks and playgrounds all over Belgium. For now though, spring seems to be transitioning us slowly from boots and hats to lighter gear. We’re welcoming the change.
