Every Saturday (or Sunday) I celebrate with Ruth Ayres at Discover Play Build. and link with others who share their celebrations, too. Ruth has made it a wonderful weekend of sharing what we are grateful for in the past week. It's also April, Poetry Month, and I'm trying to write a poem when I can, probably not every day this month, but some days when it feels right. I might visit other challenges too, and share a favorite poetry book. I want to enjoy and celebrate as much as possible.
It's been quite an interesting few weeks. This past one was spring break for my granddaughters and they spent all Monday with me which I wrote about earlier in the week. My daughter broke her leg two weeks ago while grabbing at Imogene who was skiing too fast, and toward trees. Luckily, Imi is okay, and Sarah's leg has a small break and the ACL a small tear, which means no surgery, but a brace for a long time while she heals. She is feeling better, but can't drive. This leads me to my celebration - really! She is back to work some, and took Friday off so we could spend the day together with the girls, shopping a little, eating lunch out, and taking time for a playground for the girls while we sat in the sun on a bench and visited, something to savor, no hurry. Here are pictures and Poem # 2 for Poetry Month.

We rode up and down more than once. Here are the girls, silly they are, lifting
legs, getting ready to jump off at the bottom. They did this every time,
giggling all the way.
