I need to write that right here, right now, so I can come back and remember how dear it is to me in July when we are all melting and gasping for breath in the heat.
But really, the desert is pretty glorious right now.
All the palo verde trees are bursting with yellow blossoms and we are just winding down the orange blossoms, which penetrate the air with my most favorite scent in the whole wide world.
In the midst of it all, Dave and I are training to hike the Grand Canyon the day after school gets out.
And I loved it.
But I secretly don't want him to train too much because he can hike circles around me and I want to be able to kick his booty on that trail.
So I "let" him come with me a couple weeks ago and it was such a perfect date.
In honor of spring Lucy and I have decided it's perfect weather for walking to school...with Bo in tow.
I love when we get to the school and these two can hardly stand to separate from each other:
A few pics. from some of our hiking adventures:
We love that pup but not so loving what she's doing to our yard:
The big girls have been working their tails off soaking up springtime at tennis twice a week, which I have no pictures of, but here's one of Grace, fresh from soaking up colors at the school color-run:
More on that soon...last home track meet is today!
I just want to remember these little snippets of Spring right while we're in the middle of it.
Because school is out in a matter of WEEKS, and I'm still trying to figure out how Christmas is over!
