While some of you in more reasonable climates have been enjoying green grass and warm temperatures for a while now, those of us in the great, white north are just coming out of our caves and shedding our coats now that it is finally above the 32* mark.    I argue with my big kids daily, telling them to at least wear a sweatshirt and that just because it’s 40* doesn’t mean it’s ‘hot’ (which is their great conviction).     But there’s no convincing a northern kid that it’s cold outside when the snow has mostly melted.

My little kids, however, have the good sense to KNOW that it’s been really cold and they are just tentatively heading outdoors.   Being from the equator, they have happily stayed indoors all winter long, avoiding as much of the wintery blast as possible.   BUT – the other day the sun was out and the wind was still and so it actually felt pretty good and we ventured out onto the deck for our first little bits of spring!   With bubbles and bouncy balls, we all nearly wept with joy at the release of finally being outside!
