Outdoor fun

We had some seriously C-C-COLD weather earlier this week! Yesterday, though, was very nice. It almost felt like Spring! After lunch, Meghan and I took her school work outside while Kristen and Austin played on the swing set and trampoline. 

After homework was finished yesterday afternoon we all went out to ride bikes and play basketball.  I know I've said it before but I just love the lighting at this particular time of day right now. (Around 5:00 or so.)  The sun is just starting to sink over our neighbor's house and it casts the most beautiful golden glow over our cul-de-sac, while our gorgeous Organ Mountains are lit with the most stunning shades of purples and pinks at the opposite end of our street.  (I wish I had been able to get a good picture of them.)  We stayed out until Darren got home from work (with pizza, so we didn't even have to worry about cooking dinner!).  :)  I was feeling so down yesterday and really missing my kids.  Even though Christmas break just ended, I'm already looking forward to having them home again.  I wanted to count the days until Spring Break and Summer Vacation, but I never did have a chance to find our school calendar.  But, when I went to pick up Dylan and Caitlyn from school yesterday I was chatting with one of my friends and she reminded me that they don't have school on Monday (Martin Luther King Day).  YAY!  It's not a long break, but I'll gladly take a three day weekend!  :)

Loved the moon peeking through the basketball hoop!
