Peepers, croissants and commerce

Friday was the usual blur of activity. Saturday Evie desperately wanted to play with neighborhood friends and it just wasn't working out. We went to a local conservation area to look for a letterbox. The clue was in bad Latin and we must have mistranslated something or else the box isn't there anymore. The spring peeper frogs were deafening and we spent a few hours playing in the water and laying on observation docks watching the world. We saw sandhill cranes and ducks and hawks and water bugs. It was a great way to spend a day as a family.

We had a big campfire in the neighborhood last night and we all stayed up way to late talking and playing. I had responsibilities this morning so I left the house early, but Scott had gotten up even earlier and made fresh, homemade croissants from dough he started last night -YUM!

All the neighborhood kids got together today and are running a lemonade and snacks stand. I scavenged some wood off the curb for some planters, I think Evie and I will start yardwork in earnest tomorrow.

Several days well lived!
