It’s springing here in Western KY.  With the time change springing ahead, the extra daylight hours have aided the trees in producing their blooms.  Flowers are opening up and the grass has lost it’s dead color and found new green. The temperatures are a bit warmer.  The birds that stayed around through the winter are singing a happier song than they were just last week.

Spring is a wonderful time for outdoor nature lessons.  We have some flowerpots to decorate and a variety of flower seeds soaking to germinate before planting.  We will be making a fairy garden around a tree stump in the back yard.  We will be studying the spring nighttime skies, and making a weather center.

Spring is the time to get out the sports equipment, bikes, and kites.  Hiking and picnics are on our spring agenda along with some outdoor field trips with our homeschooling support group.

Our middle ages history studies will move on into the Renaissance.

Spring is also a good time for poetry studies (picture my kids rolling their eyes and sighing).

Song of Songs (Solomon) 2:11-12

     Don’t you see? The winter is done.
The rains and clouds have come and gone.
         The flowers are unfolding in the fields;
the birds are warming up their songs,

Poetry can be in the form of music, too (picture my kids no longer rolling their eyes or sighing).

    Hooray for Spring! I love this time of year & can’t wait for those outdoor field trips with our homeschool support group. When you guys get your fairy garden done, I would love to see it. Not exactly something my 13-year-old & 16-year-old boys are interested in doing with me. Lol!

    I’m really inspired with your writing talents as well as with
    the layout in your weblog. Is that this a paid subject matter or did you
    customize it your self? Either way stay up the excellent high
    quality writing, it is uncommon to look a nice blog like this one today..

      Kandace, first, thank you for visiting. Next, know that I’m I am floored by your gracious words! It’s been a little over a year since I began the site, and I came into it knowing absolutely nothing about blogging and very little about computers and the internet. I only followed the steps from a “blogging for dummies” website, then followed the instructions from WordPress. Girl, I’m as low budget as one could be, I didn’t buy any of the customized options.
