|They were playing outside in the fresh spring air.|
|James, 10, came bounding through the door, a bolt of energy.|
|"Mom, I was looking up at the trees where the buds were, and you know what?"|
"What?" I respond.
|"There are leaves there now. All new and green."|
|"Oh, that is wonderful, honey! Spring is here, isn't it?"|
He paused for a moment and I could see he was contemplating whether or not to ask me to go with him to look at them and then he said,
"Can I take some pictures, please?"
|"Of course, " I said, handing him the camera.|
|He was only gone a short while, and then he bounded back in.|
"Look at them!" he said, handing me the camera, excited to share them with me.
And now, I share them with you.
