After the cool spring morning warmed into a deliciously sunny afternoon, it felt wonderful to take off my shoes and kick back in our front yard when I got home from work. With the advent of the lovely weather, we’ve also been seeing more of our neighbors. A few weeks ago I met this little guy, who lives two houses down. His family moved into the neighborhood in December, but the snow and cold often keep people behind doors around here. The past several weeks, though, we’ve watched him toddling down the sidewalk — and heard him singing happily to his mom while they played in the yard. I love spring.
