Spring is here. The season of rebirth, new life and new beginnings. It seems that much of the country is still covered with snow, but here at our house, the purple and yellow wildflowers cover the ground and little buds are popping up on the new citrus tree. The green pollen is thick, the bees and butterflies are busy fluttering around the windows, and the sand hill cranes frequent our yard every few days to forage for meal worms and bugs. The hawks are louder than ever as they swoop and dive through the tree canopy. They don't care much for the crows or anything else that flies too close to their nests. The alligators are croaking quite loudly at dusk and the possums that live under the deck are waking much earlier to snack in the back yard, no doubt because the days are longer.
I found this inspiring spring project on Pinterest and it motivated me to wash the giant windows and clean up all of the crayon wax and old sticker glue from this past season's artwork. I ordered a pack of peel and stick foam sheets and started cutting. The end result was 2 complete sets of everything associated with spring. This kept them completely busy for about 2 hours as they ran back and forth to the workshop asking for more. "Mama make me a lady bug! Mama, make me an egg and a chick! More flowers please and a basket! Spring is here, Mama! Soon it will be Easter and we can have candy!"
Yes my loves, spring is here, Easter is coming and candy is on the way.
