Today is the first day of spring, and I see buds on the trees. I'm not getting my hopes up, though. We have our best winter weather in spring.
1. Alaina wrote the sweetest note to her teacher. I suppose it's really up to Mrs. Casassa to say whether it's sweet or not, but I thought it was so precious:
2. In other writing news, here is Alaina's report on John Adams. Today is Liberty Day, the culmination of all the work first grade has done studying the Revolutionary War. There will be a play with songs, and a food fair, where the kids get to sample foods that are best known from the 13 original colonies.
5. I feel like I have to apologize to the month of March. I've never liked it. It moves slower than molassas. Every March lasts approximately four years. But this year it has flown by. Next week is Spring Break already, and then March will be over. Who knew? (Of course, one fast March out of 32 does NOT erase the years of torture. Maybe I'll forgive March, but withhold trust until it proves itself trustworthy. That's healthy, right?)
May your Spring be full of warmth and green and absent of snow and cold.
