What Spring looks like at our house...

I love spring! Now, generally I do not enjoy the whole "springing ahead" with the clocks but I gotta tell ya, this year, time is on my side. For an entire week and a half I have woken up to an alarm clock. An actual alarm clock! No little bodies poking or smothering hours before I'd like to get up. No little voices asking for milk. No herd of elephants dragging chairs across the kitchen to reach the cereal. I know it can't last. (Well, maybe it could if I just set my alarm clock earlier. Someday I will do that.) But for now, I am loving the sun rising just a bit later than usual, resulting in slumber that lasts a few precious moments longer. I am enjoying our lackadaisical mornings. And savoring our afternoons exploring, breathing, and devouring (some of us, literally) all things Spring.


In our neck of the woods, March showers bring April flowers.



And mud. Lots and lots of mud!

The muddy pictures are so cute. Those flowers are beautiful. I love Spring too. In fact today, it's warm enough to be outside. I think we'll go and explore ourselves.

OOOHHH!!! That makes me SO homesick for Asheville spring. I miss it so much it hurts... i love the muddy pics though, that really is symbolic of spring with kids.

I love the pictures! I remember "mud season" growing up in New Hampshire...it would go from deep snow to deep mud. A mothers night mare turns into a child's dream. But up north they have mud rooms...we don't really have those down here.

So that is why they are called "mud rooms" (I just read Carrie's comment). Those pictures are amazing!! Thanks so much for such a fun day today!!! I love you so much!
