The First Day of Spring

Happy Spring! While it's still cold and snowy where we live, I'm looking forward to all the coming delights warmer weather brings!  Such as...

Seeing the first robin

Dandelions 

New leaves on the trees

Having hummingbirds come to my feeders again

Colorful flowers growing

Green grass

"And He changeth the times and the seasons: He removeth kings, and setteth up kings: He giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:"  Dan 2:21

Planting Flower Seeds

When it looks like this outside, I needed to do something to remind myself spring will actually come to Canada. :) 

So we went to the store and bought dirt, pots and flower seeds! The children and I planted marigolds, asters and zinnias. 

On Thursday we saw that some of the seeds have already sprouted! It's been good to see things growing when it's freezing cold out. :)

Lunch in the Basement

A few days ago I decided to buy a few treats and have a picnic lunch in the basement with the children.  We had fun, and it helped break the monotony a bit from being in the house to much this winter. :)  It warmed up to above freezing today, which was nice, looking forward to springtime! :) 

Making the food. 

The children were eager to help get the plates of food ready. :)  

Ready to eat! 

Yummy lunch. Chips, ham sandwich, cheese stick, chocolate bar, and orange juice. :)
