March

I cannot really account for February – it went by so quickly. We did not have a ton of snow or wintry weather days this year – so we have been plodding back and forth to school as normal, which has been rather exhausting.

Youngest wrapped up his winter track season with a lovely improvement in the 55 metre hurdles. And then he tried out for the baseball team, and made it – and so now we are going to practices every day and have had the first 2 games. Both games quite cold, since baseball season, considered a spring sport, actually begins well before spring gets here.

One thought on “March

  1. Hello, it’s lovely to see so many posts that I hadn’t noticed! It’s also lovely to read about someone else finding the emptying nest difficult – so many people do the “oh, I raised them to fly” thing, which of course is very noble, but not how I feel. I raised mine to live independently, but nearby… and circumstances made this not happen in 2 out of 3 cases (well, partners). Ah well. You have a sweet family and your posts are very cheering. Happy anniversary!
