Sun, Outside, and Some Good Reads.

After I spent several hours this morning pouring over a paper on how "assessment informs instruction," I was grateful to get home to Matt and Ellie and brilliant sunshine.

A few piles of snow remain on the shady side of the courtyard, but we sat outside with a few other families and chatted.  Turns out that one of the other moms is basically a professional paper airplane maker, and Ellie was fairly determined to make a plane fly.


The plane kept landing behind her.

She did better just pretending to make it fly.

She eventually gave up and settled for pushing a friend's baby stroller around and laughing hysterically whenever a paper airplane hit anyone.

A little sunshine is so good for the soul.  The grass was still wet from the melting snow, and there was a cool breeze, but it was exactly what we needed.  Ellie is napping and the house is peaceful right now.  I was happy to get my camera back out, even for a few minutes. I want photograph more this spring.

Enjoy your weekend.

In case you missed it, here's Ellie's latest quotes.

Other good stuff this week?  This blog hop.

And this is more than a week old, but it's a wonderful post.
