Music, Birds, and Picnic

Spring is for a beautiful a drive to music class, for dancing and singing, for giving hugs to our teacher.

Spring is for replenishing our peanut butter and birdseed pinecone birdfeeders, for enjoying the birds that have been visiting them all week, and for watching finches wing from tree to tree.

Spring is for a lunchtime picnic on the lawn, for almond butter and strawberry jam sandwiches on sweet wheat oat bread, for talking and picking grass.

Spring is for painting suncatchers, for watching them dazzle in the sunlight, for creating together.

Spring is for making a muddy puddle to splash in, for getting messy, for knowing we can always change clothes later.

Spring is for soaking in the sunshine, listening to birdsong, pretending to be our favorite characters.

Spring is for napping in the cozy chair together, for sorting through magazines, and for favorite movies like Double Indemnity.

Spring is for celebrating, for sharing wonder, for creating awe...
