>The new order.

Today was the first day we’ve executed the new morning plan, the one where Mr. takes B to school while I head off to work. It was phenomenally weird to climb into my car, alone, and kiss the boys goodbye.

It was a lovely, overcast, slightly drippy morning.  There was rain last night – B told me he heard it last night when he woke up, but didn’t hear it while he was asleep! – so everything was damp.  In anticipation of this change in routine, I parked my car over by B’s school last night so that I could walk over that way with the boys and Miss Maya.  On our walk, I realized for the first time that the trees are blooming!  Spring is here!  (How could I have missed this?)  When I stopped to take pictures, B asked me if I missed spring, which I did.  He told me everyone likes spring because “everything comes back.”

Indeed.

New, different, better than ever.
