I’m just going to say it. I don’t know how the people in the North do it. And when I say the North, I mean anything north of San Antonio. After what feels like an eternity (which I think might realistically be more like 3 or 4 weeks) of cold weather (and by cold weather I mean in the 40s and 50s), we were finally able to get outside and enjoy the weather. The operative word being enjoy, as we’ve still been spending time outdoors…it’s just that our time has been marked by lots of whining and complaining…geez, putting this in print is seriously shameful…we are such cold weather wimps! Now that the sun has resurfaced and the temperatures have been in the mid to high 60s, we have literally spent the last five days outside from morning to evening, soaking up every ray of sun possible, enjoying our lessons on a picnic blanket, eating meals and snacks in the great outdoors. Yesterday we even made it out to the Bike Trail. To all you Northerners, I am sorry that winter is there, but I am so thankful for our beautiful, sunny, warm days (don’t worry…when you’re enjoying your beautiful spring and summer days, I’ll be griping about the stifling, humid heat, but for now…oh for now, I will enjoy this taste of spring).
