The only sign of spring approaching my neighborhood is the few minutes of extra daylight added to each day. Other than that, P3 is still having to play with his Bionicle in the snow and bring icicles in the house to melt in the kitchen sink.
"Eat a live frog in the morning and nothing worse can happen to you all day." Signs of Spring by Laurel Lee. Look carefully and you'll see three tiny frogs in the photo below. I was babysitting these frogs for P3 a couple summers ago. The container was sitting outside and a bird swooped down and ate them. I had a lot of explaining to do.
