Signs of Spring!

Forsythia blooms on the kitchen table, (forced branches brought indoors several weeks ago)
new baby chicks,
the first crocus,

and yesterday, our daughter spotted the first robin!

I know we may have more winter weather ahead, but today when listening to the birds sing while hanging laundry out on the line, it sure felt like spring had truly arrived!

Here's an idea I read somewhere that I am hoping to start this year. Make a "Spring First's List". On a piece of paper, list all the signs of spring you can think of (first dandelion, robin, honey bee, road kill groundhog?) When that item is spotted, date and sign it. Keep the list for coming years. Help encourage alertness in your children and enjoy comparing the coming of spring in various years!
