Walking to daycare

Spring is finally here, the sun is so wonderful - thawing our frozen souls. I love how the first flowers of spring are always yellow, they could be no other color.

Walking to Memphis, dagis, daycare this morning, the snow was shining and blinking and dazzling like a gazillion diamonds (or a vegas dancer, take your pick).

"Why can't I catch the sparkle, mom?" Niki asks and the explanation of sun reflections, light prisms and snow crystals is half magic / half unbelievably/tediously/boringly scientific.

I wish I could just tell her "You can, baby. Just go ahead. Catch it all day long."
