His "I'm-so-embarrassed" face.

First Spring Break

Last week was our first ever spring break, and it was pretty uneventful.

The weather was cold, except for one day which may have reached 70 but also included tornadoes west and I think south of here. The sirens even went off.

Of course, the week started with Atticus's birthday, which meant a trip to the ice cream shop play area not far from here. We had a couple of play dates that week, too. The best part of the week for me was sleeping in without worrying about getting Edith ready for school. A little taste of what this summer will be like, I'm sure.

The city school district's calendar places spring break as the week after Easter. The holiday is late next year, which means our next spring break is even more than a year away. Here's hoping it's more exciting than this one was.

How is it that three years have passed since Atticus entered the world? He was born a redhead, and he has lived up to all of the preconceptions. He's a handful. And if he wasn't, he would be him.

3-year old Atticus's favorite ...
