Spring is here, if not in body in spirit. I always feel the need to welcome spring early and this year’s winter was espeacially hard and dreary. We started with Mr. A setting up the nature table for Spring the very first Monday of March. In retrospect, we think that may have been a bit early and after discussion are thinking we should wait for the solstice’s and equinox’s to change the nature table. This week is almost always our visit to the sugar bush, capped off with a home St. Patrick’s day celebration. I have been having a hard time thinking of something new to do for St. Patrick’s day. Now that my boys are older it feels harder to inspire them, or inspire myself to find creative things to do with them… So, I will be spending some of today searching for brilliant ideas and hopefully come up with a bunch.
