spring has sprung...almost.
Perhaps it is that Persephone has returned to the land of the living, perhaps it is that spring brings out the creativity in all of us, or perhaps we are just burnt out with 'formal' schoolwork - but whatever it may be, we have had a very laid back, artistic week. We've been baking and cooking up a storm, writing, decorating, and doing lots of art. Yesterday the kids and I cut azaleas and rondodendron blossoms from our plants outside and decorated a wreath for our front door. D and J worked together to decide which colors and pattern to use, and worked patiently with K to help her add her own flowers too. It looks quite lovely hanging on our front door, despite the cold, rainy weather that feels very much like a New England spring and reminds us all that summer is just around the corner.
