On school nights I tend to drag my feet a little at the mention of getting outside to watch the sunset across the street when all I can think of is washing the days dishes, tossing kids in the bath, brushing teeth, reading a book and getting everyone to bed at a decent time, but I’m always thankful when we do. The slower pace of nature and the freedom the kids feel is like a little reset button for all of us.
Spring is here and the hillsides in Southern California are greener than I can remember them probably ever being and flowers are blooming everywhere you look. I look forward to the longer days when the sun sticks around for just a little longer once the time changes. And it brings the anticipation of those warm summer evenings that are just around the corner. But the mornings, truth be told, they feel like we are actually being robbed of sleep somehow, I know we aren’t but getting out of bed when it is still dark outside has been rough this time.
