Things We've Been Doing

It's officially spring here in Cleveland -- the daffodils are blooming, the trees are budding and the deer are eating my spring bulbs.

Daffodils have been spared but the crocuses, tulips and glory of the snow are all a dismal site.

Things the munchkins and I have been doing: visiting the zoo, science center, and children's museum with our homeschool friends, playing hockey, running, gardening, hiking, baking, and more. Please not what we have not been doing: knitting, crocheting, or spinning. I get a few rows done everyday when they're in the bath but otherwise it's just not happening.

I was there at least once a week but since having JCC I've only been once! It was nice to revel in the silence and enjoy the color. To continue the color fest, afterwards we hit the local yarn shop. I managed to escape with only the following:
