Ode to Spring

O'Spring Where art thou?

Ty, Nadia and I attempted to go for a walk in the park yesterday. We were lured there by the beautiful green grass and the warm sun shining down on us. We only got about 50 feet into the park before we had to turn back, though. I was pushing Nadia, and holding Ty's hand, and he could NOT STAY ON HIS FEET!!!! There was still so much ice on the path that I was almost dragging poor Ty along. He would take one step and his feet would fly out from underneath him and he would exclaim, :"Woah, HEY!!!" and struggle to get a footing again only to begin another dance. He looked like he was performing some sort of radical old-school brake dance move. We gave up and went home. Not before Ty chased a gaggle of about 30 geese out of the park. They were taller than him! Hopefully we will be able to try again today. As we walked back to the house we noticed something in front of our house and in our yard it's. . .GRASS! The greeeeen kind. With blades and such. No, really. I'm telling the truth. We haven't actually sent the children out in it, yet (it is pretty slimy afterall). BUT the distinct possibility of playing in it is out there.
Yesterday morning Ty, Nadia and I went to Hurst chiropractic because my back and leg were aching. I am amazed at how God is always trying to show me how to find the bright side in everything. When we walked in Ty immediately found the big fish pond. He thought the fish were great, but inquired as to why they didn't have any dolphins . What kind of paltry establishment is this!? When we asked the receptionist about this fatal flaw she said that was the question she had been asking at staff meetings as well. After my appointment Ty got to feed them, and he consoled himself with the thought that they did look a BIT like dolphins and that would have to do. Though his parting comment to the receptionist was a plea, "Dolphins?". She said she would work on it. If anyone knows of a chiropractor in Wenatchee with dolphins in the waiting room, please tell us, Ty is on a quest.
