spring

sun. beautiful warm sun

a glimpse of bright green grass

allergies

new life, pushing up through dark rich soil

flip flops

the ringing sound of the ice cream truck

the appearance of little creatures, apparently including snakes

the crying of little boys who don't want to come inside

open windows

short sleeve shirts

the smell of good clean dirt

a tall glass of raspberry lemonade

the end of winter


so why, then, did i wake up this morning to this?!






 



over six inches of snow?! i hate to think of what summer has in store for us!


what does this first day of spring look like at your house?

you're right that is a cruel cruel joke. I don't want to keep the cruelness coming so I won't tell that we spent the day at a park playing basketball, watching softball, and having a picnic and that is was the perfect amount of warmness with a cool breeze. That would just be really mean of me.
