At The Parsonage – Spring is Here

So it’s Spring. Which because we’ve had such an incredibly warm Winter, I have to say, is kind of like “oh yeah, it’s official now.” I have come to appreciate this season more, living where Winter is actually hard, harsh and long. Spring is welcomed and long for in the way I long for Fall after a hot Summer. In Texas Winter is cool then suddenly it’s hot and that’s Spring. I always thought this one just blended into Summer, like you have really warm Sp-ummer then third level of hades hot Summer.

Anyway, you’re welcome for all that. It’s Spring here. It made me happy when I opened the Easter box my mom sends every year filled with Springy things and those beautiful WHITE Easter dresses and handsome new spiffs for the boys.

I’ve even taken a few minutes to pretty the house for Spring. Aren’t tulips lovely?

The kids home in the morning have been wanting  to do more crafts lately. I dug up some for Spring. Brown chicks because I couldn’t find the yellow paint.

Esther saw the Robin foot print one and has been begging to do this for a week now. The thought of painting feet gave me serious pause but I relented and was organized enough for it to go quickly and easily enough.

So far, Spring here has been cool and rainy with the occasional warm and sunny day. Nice but keeps you on your toes. Don’t put the coats away just yet kiddies!

Another Snow Day

Not very many snow days this year. We enjoy them when we can! This one came a few weeks ago.

The feeling around here lately has been Spring instead of Winter. I have to keep reminding the babies and myself that we’re not there yet. But when we’re getting into the 70s in February it’s very hard to remember that!

It’s been 2 weeks since our last snow and tonight we’re on the eve of another bit of snow coming our way, so I thought I’d better go ahead and post these pictures. We have a great sledding hill here behind the church. I had told Phil this could be our last good snow of the season so he should get the sleds and get over to the hill, um cuz you know I wasn’t going to do it. I’m glad he did. The kids had snow much fun.
