Moving things along

Each morning sees some task begin,
Each evening sees it close;
Something attempted, something done,
Has earned a night’s repose
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

My favourite expression lately is "have we moved the marble?" Have we done something just a little bit to move something forward. Be it raking our poor winter flattened lawn, nudging Sophie a bit further along in piano, or teaching Fynn that he doesn't need mom to get him dressed each day.

We moved the marble a bit further today in that a bit more early spring yardwork was completed, a few more pages of a book were read and we used our passes up at Silver Star. We didn't fritter the day away.

Here are some photos:

I like that.
I need to get a few marbles moving here today though and get off the computer!
