Today is the perfect Southern California day. This is why we So. Cal people live here. The sun is so warm and the breeze is from the ocean and there isn't a cloud in the sky. The blue of the sky looks like a Tiffany's box (although I've never seen one in real life!) But I imagine it's the same pretty, light, perfect blue.
So, this morning everyone woke up relatively happy and I decided to take a chance and run a few errands before Kindergarten pick up. We ran to HomeDepot and picked up some bags of soil and some flowers as well as a tomato plant (decided to try one this year). We came home and started getting our hands dirty literally and WOW! how much fun the boys had. And while we were in the sunshine, I didn't hear one horrible cough! We got all the plants planted and had dirt under our fingernails. For me, it was therapy! For the boys, I think it was just an excuse to get really dirty but that's ok. We had a good time.
