Here are the top 3 signs that Spring has returned to our part of Oregon:
1) We all start sitting outside and smiling a lot again, even if it is only 50 degrees:
I love it when my oldest son, Teagan, and Alana, his girlfriend, come out to visit. We always have the best time.
2) I start taking pictures of every blooming thing I walk by (or under):
3) Track season begins.
See the boy on the right, waaaay in the distance, decked out in red and black, jumping the hurdle? That's my son, Aidan. He loves to run:
This was really an exciting race. Look at him go:
He's suddenly developed the longest legs. I'm only 5'5", his dad is 5'9"...Aidan's pushing 6' now:
That's his best pal, Louis, running next to him:
He was so pumped after this race. He won, too - his first hurdle race at the high school level!
Summer used to be my favorite season. I think it's definitely Spring now.
