Yesterday The Munchkin & I braved the chill to enjoy a beautiful, clear day. We have a tradition of finding rocks to take home to Daddy on our morning walks.
Today, though, we also found all the signs of the coming spring —
The buds just forming on the trees:
The grass returning to life:
And my favorite sign of spring of all:
Growing up in Southern California, I never got to enjoy the changing of the seasons. It’s been 8 winters since I left home, & it still amazes me watching the world thaw out & become beautiful & vibrant again!
Take your kid out on a springtime scavenger hunt! Even if you’ve seen dozens of springs, she hasn’t. Odds are, her excitement will be contagious!
