It was finally nice out here today, so the kids and I played outside for about three hours. We skipped nap time and everything. That alone tells you how badly we needed some sunshine and warm weather.
At one point during the day, all three kids were in our tiny sandbox. In the span of about three minutes, I noticed a couple of things.
Ben was so methodical and precise in the way he quietly moved the sand from here to there, then from there to here. His motor skills are still on par with a 13-month-old, but his intention was so…determined? Mature? I’m not sure exactly how to put it, but it was really quite impressive.
