A Quiet Winters Day


The sun shines so rarely in Michigan in the winter.



It’s glorious to step out the door, walk across the street, and enjoy a quiet Wednesday morning.



We checked in on Ground Zero, the islands and creek we love to play and work in during the summer.



We talked, identified animal tracks, tried out some hills, laughed when we fell down, told the ducks we were sorry we hadn’t brought them anything, but promised to return soon.


And took breaks when needed.  Yes, that’s a bare tummy.  She was SO HOT!


And when we got home, there were pancakes to eat, and books to be read, and dancing to be done, a Michelangelo video to watch, a new TryEngineering website to try out, a story to be added to, gathering of evidence and calculations and forces to be figured for our crash scene test, a Charles Dickens biography, a poem about penguins written, piano and guitar played, a new Spanish picture dictionary browsed through, and friends to play with.  A very good day indeed.
