I love the transitional seasons, Spring and Fall. Sure, the weather can be hard to predict: 80 degrees and sunny one day, and literally freezing a couple days later - but that is kind of exciting, right?! And Green Paws, First and Third Grades are all starting planting/gardening projects, which is SUPER exciting.
So when does Spring really begin? Even though March is almost over, I like to go by the equinox. Because the Earth orbits the sun on a tilted axis, our days are shorter in the Winter and longer in the Summer - really, that is what makes them Winter and Summer! But twice a year, on the Equinox, the days and night are exactly the same length: 12 hours each. The Spring Equinox was this weekend, so.... WELCOME SPRING!!!
