They Follow The Sun
My kids spend a lot of time at the kitchen table - meal times, puzzle times, craft times and play dough times.
Over the winter months though, they gravitated to their typical spot much less frequently than usual. Preferring to be on the lounge or near the dappled light of front windows as it snuck through the bare branches of the Magnolia. There they would build duplo towers, pillow towers and human towers before toppling said towers over.
But with the arrival of Spring I have found them at the kitchen table once again. With their chests bare and the sun on their backs they play and chatter, chatter and play until the backyard beckons them.
As I rush from room to room and task to task, it's lovely to pass them sitting there contentedly. You know, nothing has changed 'round here expect where the light hits the gizzards of our home, but that light has changed the way we do things.
Don't you love the way the seasons really do guide our lifestyle.*
Do you find yourself and your children gravitating to the sunny spots?
