Think Spring!

With snow still on the ground and rumors of yet another monster storm on the way, it’s hard to believe that the first day of spring is just three weeks away.  If you’re like me, you’ve had your fill of snow, two-hour delays and no school days.  Don’t get me wrong, Rydan and I have had our fun making snow angels and playing board game after board game, but let’s face it – March has arrived.  It’s time to move on from the white stuff.  I miss being able to take Rydan to the park and follow him back and forth between the swings and jungle gym.  I miss the nights when Ryan cooks dinner on the grill, and the three of us can eat together on the deck.  I miss sitting on the porch with a good book while Rydan chases Hailey around the yard.  It’s been way too many months without those moments.

To help generate thoughts of warm sunshine, green grass, chirping birds and colorful flowers, here’s a list of children’s books to remind you and your little ones of everything we love about spring.

I am ready for some gardening. I love feeling the dirt in my hands! You reminded me that I need to get my girls new gloves and shovels for Easter so they can dig too!
