Yesterday marked the end of another school year.  I can hardly believe how fast it all went, seems like we were just buying school supplies, and now here we are making our summer bucket lists.  It’s all good though.  We are ready.  Ready for a slower pace in the mornings, summer adventures and time at the pool.

While I look forward to warm summer days, and time together at home, there’s usually a bit of trepidation too.  It’s only a matter of time before the bickering sets in along with,  ‘Mom, what are we gonna do today?’ followed closely by the ever popular, ‘Mom, I’m hungry!’

The sun in finally shining here today.  Finally.  Despite the thin layer of frost, it feels like maybe spring is going to try and make an appearance.  It feels like we’ve been waiting and waiting…counting down to spring days, waiting for the our favorite parts of this season to begin….

As many parents know, when it comes to feeding our children it often feels like the job is never done.  Feeding the 3 boys in my house is like trying to fill a bottomless pit.  They are always hungry.  Fortunately, we are able to put food on their plates for 3+ meals a day.  They have no idea what it really means to go hungry.

This is not the case for many children.

Waking to a heavy fog on Sunday morning, set the tone for the day.  We moved a bit slower, snuggled a little longer and cozied up under quilts, watched movies, read and played games.  In the morning, I ventured out to get a few groceries and snapped a couple pics of the dreary day with my phone.  The country roads and barren trees, along with the heavy sky made for moody b&w images.  Later in the day, as the fog rolled back in, across the empty cornfields, I got my big camera out to capture the landscapes.

Is it spring yet?  I keep seeing these kind of comments and status updates posting on Facebook.  They make me smile a little each time I read one, as the thought has been frequently crossing my own mind lately, but I’ve been trying really hard not to complain.

I’m just going to be honest…winter is not my favorite season.  The cold settles into my bones and I literally ache from the chill.  Most days from now until April I’ll have a warm mug of something nearby.  It helps, but so do the 3+ layers I’m wearing.  No, I’m not kidding.
