The First Week of Spring

The first week of spring is upon us and we are LOVING the sunny weather and longer days!

Is anyone else feeling the joy of the time change?  ::ducks and runs for cover from parents hating children’s sleep patterns now::  My psychiatrist told me that in Sweden where it can be light up to 20 hours per day, people have been known to randomly burst into song from the overdose of sunshine.  Crazy, right?  But I am understanding that feeling these days!

We’ve been spending far more time outside, with me on my laptop in the grass and Harrison on his trampoline.  There are still a few more months before we pull out the swimsuits and sprinklers, but everything smells so bright and fresh outside!  (minus the yellow pine pollen haze!)

Here’s what we’ve been up to this first week of spring:
