Friendship...No Toys Required

" A Friend may well be reckoned the masterpiece of Nature."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
I love the barefoot days of spring. I love the soft breeze outside and the general *happy* feeling of the day when littles can be out under a blue sky, instead of cooped up in our little "box home." I love watching the friendship of my littles being nurtured by God's nature, joy and happiness filling their little bodies just because they are out in beauty. It's easier to laugh outside in sunshine, easier to fill peace when warmth is wrapped around you and the gentle scents of grasses and baked pine are flowing around. I love it. I love that there is space to run, grass to skip in and trees to climb (even though I don't....I'm scared of heights.)

Finn found grass and watched from the sidelines as I recorded Tristan and Trin's new game. It goes like this :
Stand far far as the yard will allow. Then, with arms stretched....
Run as fast as you can towards each if you haven't been near one another for a long long time.
Run with a smile, letting your toes sink into the grass and the wind flow through your hair.
Smile and laugh as you anticipate the connection...
Throw your arms around each other and laugh, so happy to be reunited and near your best friend once again. Repeat X 22.
"Friendship is love without his wings. "
~ Lord Byron
