Springtime is coming! Finally, after a long winter which began in October, the sun is beginning to be a frequent visitor and the temperature has begun to rise to 40+ degrees. This past Monday, we enjoyed spending some time outside, treasuring the warmth when it comes.
Baseball season! Sam, Jayme, and Caleb were just itching to throw the ball to each other.
Taking care of our homestead. Ben is in the process of cutting down a tree (SCAREY! Makes my heart flutter!); he may be six-foot-three, but he is no match for this tree! (I just heard him announce he’s going back out for another chopping expedition; did I mention how close this tree was to the house?)
New life. The trees are beginning to bud, and our mamma cat had five kittens!
Walks. Mmm, we can go outside and stretch our legs every once in a while! About time!
Lots of pictures. My (Taylor’s) “Arms Length Photography”. 🙂
Popcorn! Well, I guess this is year-round…and every single weekend. Our family has multiple traditions, and “popcorn night” is the all-time favorite. Friends gift us with popcorn for Christmas because we love it so much!
And, yes, this is not necessarily a sign of spring, but Mom is actually sledding down the mound behind our house (our pathetic sledding hill)! She fulfilled a promise she made to all of us that she would go sledding this winter. 🙂 Now that was a monumental event!
“For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree puts forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grapes give a good smell…” (Song of Solomon 2:11-13a)
