Outside Play!

We have had some warm weather the last couple days. Well... warm for Minnesota. It was 67 degrees, 60 degrees and 50 degrees. Which gave us 3 outside play days! It was wonderful to get out in the fresh air! Of course I used part of that time to pick up massive amounts of doggy do do- YUCK! 

We have a neighbor girl that is Sarah's age. She went over and called for her on Monday! The little girl is home because of spring break. So the first time Mark was outside with her and she rode over and played with her outside! After a few errands with Mom (me), she wanted to go over again but she has never actually called for someone- so we went together and rang the doorbell- only once, but boy, did we want to ring it more! The little girl was playing a game inside and would come out when she was done. I could tell that sweet Sarah didn't quite understand that and soooo wanted to go in her house. As her Momma- I wanted her to have that invitation, too. Kind of silly but, you remember that feeling from when you where a kid and it all came back to me- mature? I know! The invitation wasn't meant to be but she came out within 10 minutes to play! The girls rode up and down our street and played. Sarah did so well talking and interacting with her!! Thank you Jesus! They got together the next day, too. This time a third friend joined them and again the little play date went well!

I have to say that I am quite excited about the new layout on the blog here!! I am lovin the flowers down the side- very springy!!

I just love your new background! So cute!

It's so great that Sarah is making friends her age. It won't be long and you'll be having slumber parties!
