Spring is Here!

The snow has finally melted and the air is actually warm up here. Apparently it could snow again but for now we'll pretend Spring is here to stay. As with most little boys, the minute the sun peeked out last week Charlie was begging to play outside. It was actually very warm (too warm for winter clothes) so he piled on a couple layers of grubbies and ran outside. I was in the house with the windows open and I could hear him talking to himself and playing elaborate imaginary games. So when he started to yell "Help! Someday help! I'm stuck!" I didn't run out immediately because I thought it was part of the game. Finally he yelled "Mom, help me!" I peeked out the window and saw this:

The snow had a thick layer of crust on top and if you walk carefully your footsteps barely break through. But if you leap into the air and land on your rear there is no getting back up. In the second picture he's telling me "Mom, stop taking pictures! Stop laughing!" I'm pretty sure if I had a little girl this picture taking opportunity would not have come up. Spring is here!

I'm amazed that you're saying spring is here and there's snow on the ground!! We're covered up in pollen here in Alabama. Yuck!

Good point, Leslie. I guess in the north "spring" is more of an emotional feeling than an actual change in the weather. : )
