The News as of Late

Well, there isn't really news per se, but there have been goings on and such. Wiggle is putting us in hysterics for good parts of the day with his observations cute toddler sayings. Two weeks ago, we flew threw airport security trying to catch our flight back to VA. After going through the machines, we were one big mess of shoes, belts, computers, stroller, carseat, and bags. As C and I tried to put Humpty together again, Wiggle kept shouting "I want to pay for us again!" Only after all of our clothes were back on and bags were closed and secured did we realize that he meant he wanted to go through the security line and put all of our stuff on the conveyor belt again.
Since we made our flight, we spent a good few minutes giggling about that.

Last weekend we spent time in our community garden plot clearing the ground cover and trying to turn the thick. wet clay into rich drainable soil. It's a work in slow-progress due to the continued rain this weekend.

Today, Wiggle and I went to an Easter egg hunt at Fairfax City High School. The egg part was a crazy mass run that lasted all of two minutes, but we did manage to score four eggs in that time. We also got a balloon and went down a fun, bouncy slide.

C and I have, I think, given up all crazy dreams about living in Maryland or DC, and hope to live as close to campus as possible, so C can walk or bike to work, and we can see as much of him as we can during the week. The neighborhoods we're interested in seem doable, but very few properties seem to be on the market at any one time, so we may just have to sit back and wait for the right property to come along. I hate waiting for anything, let alone where we're going to live, but I'll survive.

In the meantime, it's spring. Things are blooming, songbirds are singing, kids are playing, and many, many things are right with the world.

KC Weekend

We spent the weekend in KC with my in-laws. We had a good time, but Wiggle, Wiggle had a fantastic time! We saw animals, we saw trains, and we flew kites. Totally awesome.

Trains! Trains! Trains!
