First day of spring (go figure)

It’s moving weekend. I also hear it’s spring.

Funny thing. I could swear it’s still winter.

    Wow! That is a lot of snow!

    Our first day ( in Nelson BC) was much different. Warm sunny day with lots of melting happening.

    But just 10 days or so ago winter was having a last quick at the can too with a big dump of snow.

    When spring comes ( and in a lot of ways it has arrived- even in your neck of the woods) it will be very fast!

    I am amazed by how quickly feet of snow has melted this week.

    I hope moving weekend is going smoothly.

    Ah! Here too the first day was accompagned with a nice dump of heavy thick snowflakes, and the sound of tractors plowing that snow around.

    I want snow to melt! I'm ready!

    My daughter heard it was the first day of spring and expected instant change from snow like in your pictures to grass!  I guess she didn't remember last spring and how it all happens.  I explained that we have winter time weather in spring.  And slowly we get less and less winter time weather until we have more spring-like than winter-like weather.  I'm not sure she quite grasped that concept.  I'm glad spring weather doesn't come instantly.  There would be some massive flood problems!  My kids the other day found a patch of grass where all the snow was scraped off it from a snow plow and they all stood around exclaiming over it "look! look! Grass!" :)

    As we hiked in the woods with our 3 little children yesterday afternoon, I found myself praying for your family and your AT hike. I prayed for the sibling bonds to be strengthened and for your bonds with your individual children to be strengthened. I prayed that when you are tired and weary that you would have patience with each other. Above all I prayed for blessings for your journey! 

    Cant wait to get caught up and watch video #2!!
