Spring time is officially here! Well, at least that is what the calendar says. Much of the country is being hit with blizzards right now. So much so, that I cannot complain about the blustery rainy days that we having this week at school. Can we say indoor recess with sixth graders?!
With the coming of spring, I am dreaming of sunnier days ahead! I am looking forward to planting flowers in my backyard, hanging up my winter coats, and enjoying the newness that spring brings to our lives. I am also looking forward to the yummy sweet treats that just seem to scream, “Spring is HERE!” You know those light lemony delights, fruit filled bites, and simply scrumptious sweet treats!
