Spring is Here!

Spring is Here!

Spring is finally here! We have spent huge chunks of time outdoors the past week now that the weather has finally warmed up. Today I spent time alone with each of the little kids. I spent the morning blowing bubbles, riding in cars and cleaning the garage with my son. He was very helpful sweeping and we spent quite a bit of time talking about bubbles.

 

During the afternoon I played hockey, drew with sidewalk chalk and worked in the garden with my daughter.  She “taught” me how to play hockey (even though it was her first time) and drew all over an old stump while I weeded. She had this fabulous idea to paint individual rocks in the driveway to create a mosaic. I love all of her ideas!

 

While my daughter and I were exploring we discovered a sign of spring I have been waiting for.  Our first asparagus poking up through the ground! I have been checking our asparagus beds daily for the last few weeks so I could see if it survived the winter.  Asparagus was the first thing we planted last year in our new home and we are very excited about it. Now to get the rest of the garden into shape!
