Just a few days ago I saw my first robin of the season. To me this has always been a SpEcIaL sign that spring is on its way. When I taught first grade I always loved watching the excitement on the faces of my students when we would spot the first robin on the field outside of our classroom. I would let all of the kids get out of their seats and look out the windows to count how many robins they could see throughout the large playground and field behind our school. Besides the robins, it has been staying light out later, the sun has been coming up earlier, and the temperature has been climbing.
With all of these changes I can’t help but get excited for the upcoming spring season and all it has to offer. Playing in the yard with my kids, working on my outdoor craft projects, and barbecues just to name a few! If the winter months have found you a little down, rest assured…BrIgHtEr days are just around the corner!
