Spring is Coming!

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant. If we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.
Anne Bradstreet (1612?-1672
) US poet.

Monday, there was nothing showing around the flagpole at school except dead leaves and flower stalks. Then, suddenly, yesterday morning there were crocuses! And then only after the sun came up.

What a welcome sight after what seems like forever since we last saw anything bright outside! And what a bright spot in a challenging day that saw our little school without three teachers and two other staff members. The rest of us were stretched to the max, but being able to go outside for recess, and seeing these little bright spots made such a difference.

Next up: daffodils =)
