Goodbye winter welcome spring

We did not get the expected cold winter. Here in our little corner of Canada, we had the just about the right amount of everything - perfect for kids to explore the outdoors. What we got a lot of this winter was colds, stuffy noses and whistling chests. Those are definitely things we could have done without- and that is what reminded us exactly what time of year it was.
And what of our activities and our special space? I can count on both hands (which is better than one hand) how many times we really got to explore, and simply throw ourselves back into nature- the tress, the special hiding places...

One thing we learnt this winter was that plans always change. We also got to appreciate the art of everything- of making & sharing food; making art, making music, creating space, making space for others, AND making ourselves at home.

As a new season arrives, I think we would all agree it is time for a change. We have shed the white of our nature table, to the earthy tones of early spring. We have found books that reflect the changes of the seasons, and making plans to create beautiful art- using nature as our backdrop.
We are focusing on planning the activities of the outdoors...many of them. Most importantly, we are growing and learning new things every day. 
It is time to create new memories, and remember the steps that each of us must take to be a part of this special circle. 

Goodbye winter...hello spring!

I think we are all happy to welcome Spring. Each season has something to tell us. But when days are brighter, we can enjoy being out and nothing is more special than these moments in nature.
