This has been a pretty dry winter. For the most part we have had many sunny, cool days. This means plenty of time for playing outside. When the kids aren't sick and not showing signs of getting sick, we are outside for every sunny day. These boys love to play outside and have tons of energy. They get a little crazy in the house if they can't get their energy out on the jungle gym. The winter is rough because sickness is everywhere. When the boys are healthy I try to make sure they are outside having fun (while, of course, watching every child as they come and go from the park and leaving at the first sight of a child sneezing). This winter the sicknesses have been pretty bad. However, we have been lucky because the boys have fought them off pretty well. We are happy to have them playing outside. They ask to play outside all day long!
