The birds are chirping, trees are budding, and Mother Nature is at it again confusing us all. As I type this, outside my office window it is snowing on April 25, 2016. Maybe I jinxed us all by packing away all signs of winter in our home?
Although it is officially spring, we do know that spring weather has to come eventually, right?
Garden planning in under way, we have booked Ontario Parks camping sites, and I am planning summer camps and fun for the kids. Our bikes have been oiled, and the kids have had no shortage of driveway fun these last few weeks.
This spring our daughter also turned 10!
With this new chapter she is on the path to independence, I gave her a task this week, which she was excited and willing to take. It wasn’t too big, but she was grinning from ear to ear about it.
