Today, while the other kids went to the dentist, Mark, Megan and I enjoyed the park.Â We took our cameras, hoping to find some good pictures.
We saw more deer during our walk then we did all last year.Â We practiced getting pictures of birds and flowers.Â Then after our “lessons”, we played at the playground.
Mark introduced Megan to the tire swing.Â She loved it!Â I was surprised that she did not dizzy or fuss about going around in circles.

How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside–
Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown–
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!
Megan had a lot of fun in the puddles today.Â I am glad that she has a good pair of boots!
While I was making dinner tonight, I discovered all the kids playing in the rain.Â Mark and Andrea were having a water fight in a mud puddle.Â Audrey was using her scooter.Â Megan and Adrian were enjoying playing in puddles while using umbrellas.
I watched them for a little bit, then sent them inside for warm baths.
It is hard to believe that my little boy is six years old.Â We have been teasing that he is turning 4 today 🙂
Adrian had learned a lot this year!Â He loves to read.Â He likes science books and The Bobbsey Twins.Â Adrian enjoys doing his school workbooks and mazes. He is doing much better cleaning his room.Â Tying shoes is hard, but Adrian is trying to learn.
Adrian loves to be outside.Â I often find him outside playing with bubbles or playing on the swings. He is looking forward to his second year in soccer.
I am so thankful for my Adrian.Â God has blessed us!
Happy Birthday, Handsome boy!
Trying to get new pictures to show how fast the kids are growing can be a challenge. I like how this one shows their heights and that they can have fun together!
Megan had been helping Daddy and her hands were filthy!Â I did get some other pictures of her greasy hands, but I think this is the best of the bunch.
I have been having fun experimenting with pictures today.Â This is my favorite so far.
In case the budding trees and flowers blooming do not prove to you that spring is here, we spotted our first Chalk Men! Spring is officially at the McGuire household!
