For us (I am in NH) it also brings insects (think ants, spiders, flies, MOSQUITO'S) and mud. Ugggg...mud, a housewife's worst nightmare. That is early spring when the snow melts and rain comes but the grass is not grown yet. I decided to make a card that brings back memories from a mother with 2 of the male persuasion.
This is the adorable Sew Many Cards image Duncan and Owen. The frog is not part of the image, I added him so I could enter a certain challenge (big smile for my ingenuity, tee he)

Another thing spring brings to mind is signing up for the summer reading program at our local library. My daughter enjoyed this as well as the boys. We would sign up late spring, when the mud was dry ;o) Their favorite part was reading enough to earn the FREE PIZZA at our local Pizza Hut, LOL. They all love reading to this day and eating pizza too.
Reading in the summer, for the most part, brought happiness. Probably because they did not HAVE to do it and could choose their own books as long as it stayed in the programs theme. Of course, why share their treasured book they searched so diligently for. Might as well sit on it so the others don't "steal" it...ha ha ha...I know your kids didn't do that, right!?
