spring preview

One warm day last week, Tuck played outside all afternoon.  He drew chalk tracks and watered tulip sprouts and dug through the compost pile.  He asked Andy to help him with a new baseball bat, and despite only hitting every tenth pitch or so, persisted, saying “Throw it again, Andy. I’m gonna keep trying.”  When it was time for dinner Tucker trudged through the back door with dirt from head to toe and a smile that covered just about as much surface area.

It snowed again today, but the sun and the soil seem to be gossiping about spring.

Way to go Tucker! If Tucker wants to watch some baseball I could give you Jordan's Midddle School schedule.
Enjoy the sunshine.
