Has spring fever hit you yet? It's hit our home with a vengence. We've had some beautiful weather. The kids have worn their shorts, my seven-year-old granddaughter has been able to spend a few days in her flip flops (her foot gear of choice all year if she didn't have to worry about her toes freezing) and now we are expecting snow in parts of Iowa. No matter how many years I've seen the weather get warm and then cold again, I still hope those first few warm days are the first signs of summer. OK, that is too much to expect from March.
I'd love to be able to say we've spent these last couple of weekends traveling to new places. I can't. As excited as we are for summer to start, these last couple of cool days has given us time to sit back and relax. School is winding down, it's only about a month for two grandchildren and about five weeks for the other three. Awana is ending for three in two more weeks and two in three more weeks. There is the rush to get memory verses completed to try to finish the book by the end of the year. Dance classes are busy getting ready for spring show. Softball and baseball has begun.
This is the perfect time of year to pause, regroup, rejuvenate, and get that second wind. So when there is an early out from school, that unexpected couple of hours, we find a good movie, grab our knitting, sit back and just relax. Well, my grandson doesn't grab knitting, he doesn't need to keep his hands busy when he veges like the rest of us. Homework gets done. Bible verses are memorized. Summer will come eventually. In the meantime, enjoy a few relaxing days before the fun and adventure of summer begins.
What do you do to regroup to get ready for summer?
