The weather here was absolutely gorgeous today, so we played outside after school, and Zach and I took a bike ride around the block. He is doing AWESOME without training wheels!
I am really going to miss living here in Virginia. I was born and raised here (but lived in the midwest for 2 years), and have traveled all over the place- but I always thought Virginia was THE best state. I have always loved and appreciated the beach, mountains, foliage, weather here, but I think I am paying even more attention, knowing that I will be moving soon.
This is my favorite time of year. I love to see all the tiny buds of my plants and flowers coming up out of the cold earth, and everywhere you go around Hampton Roads, there are beautiful Bradford Pear trees, and Cherry Blossoms blooming. Even my baby Cherry Blossom tree is budding out with new blooms. We planted it in the bare spot left during the Nor'Easter November of 2009, when we had two 80 year old Oak trees completely uproot. One fell forward over the street and took out the power lines, and one fell toward the front corner of our house, and hit our neighbors den. Needless to say that was stressful. But life goes on, and like the tides, everything keeps on moving. Look at me being all sappy and nostalgic!
I still can't figure out how to get the Polyvore on the same post as the actual writing and the pictures, so you get two posts today. I am also including a pic of Zach with the baby chicks in his class from yesterday.
