have you seen any of that green stuff peeking?

once jenn & i decided on SPROUT for our team-up fun…
i was determined to find something leaping from the ground.
after dropping the girls off at school i set out.
let me just say…
i found a horse… some cows… a bunch of really cute prairie dogs… a load of cacti…
but…
not one sprout was to be found.

the sun WAS shining… we had hit a high of sixty!
certainly the green was ready to see the sun too.

once the girls were home from school… and going wild outside…
lo & behold… in our backyard…
they found a SPROUT!
all be it small… but… it was there.
yet another reminder of the new to come.
sprouting out… all proud… to say…
we’re on our way. 
so there we were… the girls & i… playing outside.
the sun on our faces and a little sprout of happiness.

happiness…
just what this team up thursday brings me.
and i couldn’t have smiled any bigger when i saw jenn’s capture.
look at those bits of green jumping out!
and those shoes!
honestly… any cuter?  possible?  no!

and btw… sure there is some crazy winter weather storm coming…
lots of snow and all… but…
i have a sneaking suspicion…
those little sprouts will stand strong.
hang in there.
no matter what wind blows in.

a SPROUT.
i like to think of it as a piece of tangible hope.
not sure exactly how it might grow… but…
you know it WILL.
