Weekend of Sun And Rain

Winter seems to have gone. I'm not sure I'm supposed to say that aloud. Btw, it's aloud, not out loud. Out loud isn't a thing, it's ALOUD. Regardless (not irregardless which is also not a thing) there was sun for soccer and play time on Saturday so we did what is required of families, we went out and hit a playground.
It occurred to me as we hit up a Gwinnett County Park for the billionth time, that we've really lived here a long time now. The twins weren't as old as Julia when we moved here. In April we will have been here 7 years. That seems like a long time.
We didn't have an Austism diagnosis when we moved here, we just didn't know what was wrong. We didn't have a Julia. Our family wasn't complete yet.
That seems like it's impossible that she wasn't born yet, because now it seems like she's always been with us.
But she hasn't. If I scroll back on this blog I'll find plenty of pics at parks that are just little boys on swings. I find that fascinating really, it's hard to remember her not being with us.
It was a perfect break from the cold dreary winter we've had. I was so glad the sun was out and we got to play.
Because wouldn't you know it, today we woke up to epic downpour and flooded streets and falling temperatures. Not winter but dreary and cold. But that's ok, because we've got puzzles.
Really, that's all we need.
