Spring is Blowing in the Air

Yesterday was a beautiful first day of Spring, but no one was outside celebrating – most likely because of the strong gusts of wind that got up to 50 mph.

Instead, my kids played with toys. Or rather rediscovered ways to play with toys.  Sam pulled out a robotic spider that he’d been given a couple of years ago and realized it could act as Aragog to his Lego Harry Potter sets.  All the kids took to it.

Katarina, without telling anyone, pulled out a couple of magnetic stuffed animals and placed them in funny poses.  She kept moving them, so for awhile there I thought they were reproducing.  It almost turned into an iSpy game.

They always seem up to something – in this case, clearly the cat is rescuing the mountain goat/bighorn sheep (I can’t tell what exactly it is).

I thought the animals had disappeared until I went to leave today… apparently someone else was trying to leave as well.

Yesterday also marked the beginning of Bubble Week but the bubbles would pop before blowing away in the strong currents.

So, we began making SUPER BUBBLE SOLUTION!   The link will take you to the recipe. This solution will let you bounce bubbles on your hands!

We’ll let you in on a secret:  you need to let this solution rest for 24 hours before it can perform at its peak. We’ll show you how to use it later this week! It’s so fun!

We know it’s officially Spring because Katarina starts the Tennis season while the wind blows wildly.  Last year during tennis, every match seemed to be a contest to see who could keep the ball in the court despite the wind, rather than a game against each other.

The season also gets the other two kids thinking that they want to play tennis.  Which means a lot of running around the courts getting balls which means exercise so I’ll take it.

Happy Spring!
