Spring



     It feels as though spring is taking forever to arrive this year.  We have had a few  beautiful spring days lately, but most of the weather during April was extremely cool with a few very hot days mixed in.  Last weekend, my husband and the boys were able to put out a small vegetable garden in our backyard.  We don't have a lot of space, so they only planted a couple of tomato plants, half a dozen broccoli plants, some green beans, corn, cucumbers and zucchini squash.  The boys had a great time helping their daddy plant the garden.  Now we need this warmer weather to speed the growth of the plants although it will be a while before we see our first sign of corn and bean shoots pushing through.  I am looking forward to eating fresh vegetables out of the garden.   I am not looking forward to the extreme heat and humidity of summer, but I really am anticipating some of those spring days much like we had this weekend.    It turned out to be lovely weather for the boys to enjoy there soccer games.  I will finish with final exams in the next ten days and am looking forward to taking a few days off to go camping in Pennsylvania and visit friends and family there.  Maybe spring finally has arrived.
