Spring photos and a conversation with K

It has been a very long winter here with more snow than we have had in years, but last week we had a wonderful warm day.  Dressed in their farm clothes, my younger two had a great time exploring, and just doing all of those things that kids are supposed to do during this season.

Chasing and being chased by our friendly cats

Jumping over logs & playing with sticks

A couple of days later, K & I took a look at these photos on the computer.  She loves looking at pictures and  it is a great way to get her talking.  When we looked at the first 3 pictures, she talked about being happy, playing outside, the cat, the snow, her sister, and all of the typical responses that I was expecting.  However, when we looked at the above picture and I asked how she was feeling I was surprised when she said  "I was sad. "  I didn't expect this, as I thought they were both having a good time, so I asked her why & she responded "That was scary! My foot stuck." It turns out that she got her foot caught & her big sister had to rescue her.  I didn't like to hear that she was scared, but how wonderful that she was able to tell me what happened.
