There is a blessing in the air....

"It is the first mild day of March.
Each minute sweeter than before.....
There is a blessing in the air.....
-William Wordsworth
March is here, the last hurrah of winter and the first whisper of spring, drawing us outside to partake. It felt so good. There is a feeling down deep of hope. Spring is like that. Yesterday and today were wonderfully warm. The world outside still looks asleep, but not for long. Tomorrow a storm is coming, but it is much more bearable in March.






The kids enjoyed being outside to play without winter coats, hats, and gloves. Good to see neighbors out as well. Rocks and sticks make for great toys.

I loved walking Eme to school without a huge coat on. I think having kids makes us enjoy the weather more.
