Slip Slidin' Away

Here in Big Sky Country it seems we're stuck in eternal winter. Let me explain: Monday it was up to nearly 70 degrees, Garrett was convinced he was done with snow pants and snowsuit for the year, and we actually had to cool off using the A/C in the car. Well wouldn't you know it, we woke up on Tuesday morning to snow and lots of it. And again today, Wednesday, SNOW! I find myself thinking, 'Enough already, bring on the sun!!!!!'

HOWEVER, and this is a big however, I now want to rescind my lament. Why? Well because after sorting through more pictures on my hard drive, I came across the above photos. While the green grass, warm weather, bright sun, and outdoor fun are ever-appealing I find myself no longer wishing the days away. Wishing the days away means one day further from where we currently are. And one day further from where we currently are means being one day closer to the kids being grown up and gone.
The above photos are from two years ago this coming June. TWO YEARS, people!!! I look at this slip slidin' fun and feel time slip slidin' away. Spring, you can stay away....just as long as it means I get to hold my babies and keep them little forever!
Good night ya'll. I'm off to look in on my sleeping cherubs...
