Soon after our ice fishing expedition, we bid farewell to our winter lawn ornaments. Sweet Billy Bob snowman and his wife Suzy Q disolved before our eyes on one warm day.
And suddenly, the world began to transform before my eyes. A long, cold, hard winter which kept me (and the kids) inside for six months gave way to a slow spring. Somehow these pussy willows survived the blizzard which flew in after the snowmen melted.
The tulips have poked their heads above the ground and soon they will share their joy with us.
Even though the weather forcast predicts more snow in the week, I'm reveling in the glory of sunshine and green. The kids have been climbing their favorite climbing tree, playing softball, chasing the geese through the corn field, creating chalk drawings, flying kites (well, at least, we tried), jumping rope, blowing bubbles, riding bikes and breathing fresh air.
Thank You Lord for FRESH AIR!
