Three lilies.

It's always amazing to see our pond come back to life in the spring. After months of desolation during the winter, the fact that anything could survive is hard to believe, but so far everything has come back each year - the fish, the plants and the flowers.

Mark also fixed the pump, so the water is flowing again. I love to sit in the sun right beside the pond and listen to the water running off of the rocks. It's not exactly the waves crashing against the shore, but it's nice in it's own way.


Lauren also took her first swim of the year. Last year, she swam twice and then developed an aversion to water (which made bath time quite a challenge). While she is mostly over that phase, she was still struggling a little bit with the concept of "being wet." She sat and played for a good three hours, so that's a step in the right direction.
