I often hear the statement, laughter is the best medicine. In my eyes the best medicine would be daylight. With the beginning of daylight savings time, I have officially survived another brutally cold Wisconsin winter.
We spent this last weekend at our favorite kayak/canoe convention with thousands of people just like us. Folks eager to hit the water and paddle. I will have a complete post on this Wednesday, but let me be the first to say, “I am so happy Spring is officially here in 10 days.”
With the change of the clocks this last weekend the first thing I want to do is go for a walk after dinner with my hubby in DAYLIGHT!!! No flashlights, no strobe blinkers and no reflecting vests to wear over our jackets. I know this may not sound exciting to most people, but to throw on my jacket and leave in seconds is wonderful.
The next thing I want to do is start seeing my neighbors outside in their yards and see kids ride past on their bikes. During the winter months, I swear we all hibernate like bears here in Wisconsin. Just walking to the curb to retrieve our mail is a chore. (Which is why I usually have my son retrieve ours)
My kiddos and I have been discussing Spring during circle time for weeks. We want to go to the park, ride our bikes, draw with chalk, play on the climbers out back (in time, it’s awful wet yet), blow bubbles, take a walk, etc. To say we are ready and excited would be an understatement. It’s like Christmas in March, so hard to wait for. That’s why, for me personally, the very best medicine is to let the sun shine longer.
WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU CAN’T WAIT TO DO ONCE SPRING ARRIVES?
