It may have snowed Friday (sadly not the possible 37cm), but the weather has definitely taken a turn towards spring.
This weekend Matthew went to a birthday party down the street which was declared "super fun". He insisted on being called "Max" as per the tag on his dog costume that he wore to the party for some hours after. Later we had a three-way Skype with Grandma and Grandpa H. "How???" demanded Elizabeth. "How is that even possible?" Then: dinner with neighbour friends. Charlotte is fascinated by Amelia. Amelia inclined to shriek in her face and run away from all the love. Everyone found this amusing, except poor Amelia.
Beautiful sunny Sunday meant all the kids were out on the street. All our toys with wheels got dragged out and tried in turn. Elizabeth and Matthew tried out the big bikes that they had just been starting to ride in the fall and as is spring ritual declared them "too hard" and "scary". I predict Elizabeth will get over it quickly especially since neighbour girls her age all have bigger wheels. Matthew was really unsteady so I foresee much coaxing.
