I'm afraid we've got it bad in the James household (I know I'm getting way ahead of myself..as I write this post, snow is falling!). Last week there were a couple of days that were temperate enough for me to be convinced (thanks to two puppy-dog-eyed boys) to take a slow and lazy stroll around the 'hood. We've gone on plenty of here-to-there walks, but it's been too long since we've ventured outside just to hang out and let Levi roam around unhindered. I almost forgot quite how happy he is to be set free in the great outdoors; as soon as he was let loose, he was a running, giggling, excitedly-pointing, muddy little mess of joy. Little glimpses of what is to come, hopefully sooner rather than later! Also, I need to get this kid a good pair of galoshes - pronto.
