Little Signs of Spring

I know it’s only the second day of February and that means we still have a good bit of winter left, but the past week has given us little signs of spring.  I’ve heard some birds chirping, the weather has warmed up (though it’ll drop back to freezing temperatures next week), the sun is shining, and the snow is melting.

As much as I love winter (really, I do!), the lack of sun and the icy roads here can make it difficult to stay positive, so I’m welcoming these little signs of spring with open arms.  Spring is very beautiful here, minus the muddy/icy roads, and I’m looking forward to it!  Of course, the nice weather this week means noisy and overly energetic kids at school, but I can’t really blame them.  This weekend might even be over 50 degrees (Fahrenheit, of course)!
