Emmett got to celebrate Holi today with a bunch of neighborhood kids, and he had a blast.  The Indian festival of colors to welcome spring was a perfect way to spend this warm, sunny afternoon.  On our walk back home, lots of people stared at Emmett and me, drenched in colors. 

In the elevator of our building (which has a high Indian population), an Indian girl about my age grinned widely when she saw us.  "Did he get to play Holi?" she asked.  I told her he did, and she sighed, telling me how much she missed celebrating Holi, and it made her happy to see Emmett enjoying it.

He is just the sweetest little boy I know. Wish I could give him a hug!
