"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

The First Signs of Spring

I know that parts of the northern U.S. has been slammed with snow this winter season, so I feel a little bit guilty for this post.

Honestly, though, we kind of miss snow. Especially this year, because I know Little B would have had an absolute blast playing in it (he was too little the past two winters).

We've been experiencing crazy Texan weather here. People aren't kidding when they say, "If you don't like the weather in Texas, wait five minutes." Okay, so that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but seriously, it goes from hot to cold to extremely windy to thunderstorms to sunny ... in a day.

No wonder we've been sick!

Here are some pictures from a gorgeous afternoon a couple weeks ago, though. We enjoyed our backyard and having a kiddo who is old enough to (sort of) entertain himself.

He's "reading" a truck book. He has his own little chair, but he wanted to read like this.

We were being watched.
B decided to investigate.

And here are a few photos from a Kindermusik day.
We were making up a class (with a different teacher at a different location), and there were lots of ducks in the pond that day.

According to B: "Duckies showering!"

Yep. They sure are.
