I worked last Saturday in order to stay home with Gabe and Thomas on Friday, and what a beautiful day it was. Thomas built a Lego helicopter in the morning and then took it outside for a while, and later he lay down on the floor next to the open door and read a book. It felt like summer. He's outside now, riding his bike. Gabe is asleep in my arms as I type, and I'll be back outside with him very soon. He seems to appreciate the fresh air, the sounds of the birds chirping, and the gentle breeze rustling through the trees... or maybe that's me.
