Snow, snow go away....

You know it’s been a long winter when the kids are even ready for the snow to go away.

Kids usually like the snow and welcome it even into April. But the other day Monkey said with real enthusiasm, “Mom, look you can see that the snow is starting to melt, because you can see the lights now!” He was so excited and is very excited to get to ride his bike up and down the driveway and street this spring/summer. (He's talking about the bulb Christmas lights that we had put along the sidewalk. They were totally covered, but now are very clearly showing. Hopefully there's enough snow gone that we can get them out of the ground.)

I guess spring can’t get here soon enough. I love spring because I love seeing the grass for the first time even though it is brown and dead. Then I love seeing that first good rain where you can literally watch the grass turn from brown to green right before your eyes as it rains. Simply amazing.

However, I dislike spring for some of that same reason, but only because the rain, and melting snow make for very muddy messes. And mud splashes on the pants don’t always like to wash out very easily. :)
