3 year old mischief

We recently got Caley a little lap table so she can color in the car. It's worked pretty well and her car behavior is getting a lot more manageable. But today instead of coloring the paper while I was driving, she colored her FACE! I totally didn't notice it until I'd stopped the car and got her out. But it was so cute and funny I wasn't even mad. I guess I learned not to trust her with pens, she'll be coloring with crayons in the car from now on.

And like most of the time, Amelia just sits quietly, taking it all in.

Thursdays are one of my favorites days because we have playgroup and sometimes I get a sitter in the afternoon for some "time off." Today was great, we went to a playgroup field trip, got some yummy lunch, then the girls went to the sitter and I got to go running. It was a beautiful day, I rocked out to my Podrunner music and ran hard. Along the road I saw some beautiful purple crocuses (or is it croci?) and it was a wonderful reminder that winter is on it's way out and the days will soon be getting longer and warmer. The changing of the seasons is such a wonderful time, such a beautiful reminder of God's glory and love for us. I love the winter because snow is fun and the holidays are great, but it's such a relief to not have to always have the heat on and wear eight layers of clothing.

Thank you Jesus for the sun, that it warms us and lets flowers grow and add color to a cold world.
