Fresh start

So I'm back again...I think. At least I'm trying to be back. I've just felt lacking on the blogging side of things...not much going on, not much to write about.

I am so excited for spring. Mara and I were outside working in the garden yesterday, and I found a few worms for her to play with. When she was talking to Josh about it later, she told him that the worms were moving around. He asked her what it looked like, and she said, "Oh, like a wormy moving," and she got on the floor and arched her back to show off her worm skills. We had fun outside, and I'm excited for a weekend outdoors!

One other quick funny Mara moment: Mara loves to hold people's earlobes when she's tired...strange, I know. The other day we were giving someone a ride, and Mara started holding her ear. After a few minutes, she told the girl, "Oh, my arm is SOOO tired. I can't hold it up...(pause)..I'm going to have to let it down ...(pause)....I'm going to have to put it down.....Is that okay?" It was so cute and funny because she really was so tired.

In other news, Mara started dance classes in January. She LOVES tapping around, and she just had her dance pictures taken this week. I'll post some pictures of her classes soon.
