Flying in the Tree

The kids came home today! I made them a special dinner of homemade mac and cheese, asparagus (first organic ones of the spring!) and little doughnut muffins for dessert. They were restless after being in the car so they went outside with Peter to build a fire pit. I have no idea where that came from - the fire pit, not the restlessness.

Miss E climbed high enough in this tree that I couldn't watch. Between her wearing her rain boots, that tree being soaked with water for the last, oh, 6 months and with moss growing all over it, it was a slippery, slimy accident waiting to happen. But, I let my kids climb trees so I spent most of the time in the kitchen trying not to watch. When I came out to snap this picture she yelled "look mama, I'm flying! I've always wanted to fly". And that made all the potential arm and leg breaking worth it. Well, until someone actually breaks an arm or leg. That would suck.
