"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

52 Weeks of Blessings -- week 10-- Spring

This week's blessing is spring! Today was SO nice and springy that I couldn't resist using it as my blessing of the week. I love how people feel good and get out and enjoy a beautiful spring day! I love when the trees bloom and the flowers push their heads up through the dirt! The motorcycles were out in abundance today, people were out washing their cars and for walks all over town. The SUN was shining and it was a warm 50 degrees {hey, that's warm when we've had days and weeks of frigid weather (this link the weather note is on the very bottom of the post) !} Today a lady brought a nest in to share with the kids at Church. It had fallen from one of her trees in a wind storm a few years back and since it was undamaged in the fall she saved it. the kids were all fascinated by it. Spring means the renewal of life. New born calves are dotting the fields, birds are returning from their winter homes in the south, the brown lawns will soon be bright and green. Also, it is the time we celebrate the Resurrection of our Savior -- a renewal of life!
Here we have some spring science projects: Robby made the "green house" with the neighbor kids, it is sponges with grass seeds that he waters daily. Scott and EmmaLece planted flowers during their primary class today at church. They were SO excited! Emma said she was growing a flower and Scott said he was growing dirt!
Although I know we will probably have cold and snow again before spring truly arrives, I do so love the first glimpses into SPRING!

It is so nice to get a warm-ish day amidst the cold. And if the cold comes back, you have those wonderful science experiments to remind you Spring's around the corner.

I meant to ask you, how do you find the different backgrounds for blogs? I've only been able to use those generic ones from blogger.. I'm getting kind of tired of mine! :)

I love spring! And I'm tired of the weather tease. One day spring, next day winter. I can't handle it. Cute idea for a science project though. And I usually grow dirt also. I always hope for flowers though.
