Some springtime firsts we’ve been experiencing:
*We’ve had our first listening of the peepers singing their Welcome Back Spring song.
*Summer saw her first black squirrel ever!
*We put our first things in the ground! Peas!
(Uh, and lettuce and spinach. I promised myself I would NOT do a garden this year…too much going on with the new house, moving, etc. We shall see.)
*We saw our first black bear out of hibernation….in our compost pile!
*We’ve had our first cruises “the back way” to Grandpa Steve’s and Grandma Connie’s!
*We had our first pigeon chicks hatch, and sadly, die.
*We’ve had our first gum vs. hair event. (Which included a first haircut with a utility knife!)
*Today was the first bare feet day!!
*Daddy and John had their first springtime telehandler cruise.
*We’ve tasted the first green things that have come up! (Even if they were only chives!)
*Summer got her first sunburn of the year. (Oops. Those April winds sure are deceiving. I wouldn’t have thought it was a sunburn kind of day!)
*We colored our first Easter eggs!
They took the color quite nicely, considering they were brown to start!
