The last snow melted from our yard Friday afternoon. It got up to around 50, and spring definitely felt close. The kids got home from school — giddy and bursting with excitement. “The snow’s gone! The snow’s gone! The snow’s gone” They all chanted.

Then they all suddenly disappeared downstairs.

Five minutes later they all re-appear — in their swimsuits. “MOM! Turn on the sprinklers, we’re headed out!”

  1. My kids are ready to skip spring and head straight to summer too! My five-year-old wanted to plan a water balloon fight for after school today. A little sunshine goes a long way!

  2. My kids were asking to go swimming over the weekend. Our subdivision pool doesn't open until May and they just didn't understand why? It did get up to 70 but, I don't think they realize just how cold that water still is! I'm with the kids all the way and can't wait for the days to just hang at the pool all day!
