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.
