I don’t know why but this winter has been hard. I guess I know some of the reasons. This winter has been cold, wet, and stormy. We have tried to go outside but it has been downright lousy. On top of, or perhaps because of the weather, our family has been hard hit by colds. It seems like it has been months since we have had the whole family feeling well. In the past we could work around poor weather and some sniffles but with kids the whole house gets stir crazy. Please let the sun shine.
Spring is here and we will assume that we will get some rain free moments to go outside. We will try and use every last one we can. In the Fall we decided to do a weekly activity challenge and each week we did an Autumn themed outdoor family activity. We are essentially doing the same for the spring but we are not limiting the activities to one a week. We have come up with a list of activities to do and we will try to complete the list before the end of spring. Some of these are large activities and some are small. We will have to go out as a family and find some stereotypical Spring items or have some typical Spring fun in order to check off everything from our list. We will win a prize (donations welcome) if we can check off the entire list.
Each week we will update what we accomplished. Since we are in a photography state of mind these may become photo essays rather than written works. Let us know if you have any ideas to add to our list as this is not a completed list yet.
On Sunday, the first day of spring, we did our first annual backyard Crocus count and found 118 crocusses blooming in our backyard. Yahoo, spring has begun!!!!
