First Signs of Spring

Yes, spring is on it's way. I can tell.

Not by the weather warming up (it isn't).
Not by the flower buds appearing (not yet).
Not by the bees buzzing around (too cold still).
Not by the butterflies fluttering through the yard (haven't seen any).
Not by the fact that Target is now selling 4th of July decorations (might be but haven't been there).

No, it is the lovely sound of a baseball hitting the side of the house

THUNK

that truthfully tells us that spring is coming. It might not be real close yet, but it's coming.

That's right. Little League practice is already starting.

At least it was the side of the house and not a window.
Love those boys, Mom

Yes, you have the distinct honor of being the first person to have a window broken by a baseball thrown by my boys. Thank goodness they are your grandsons so you couldn't be too mad. That is, until you stepped on the large shard of broken glass in your bare feet when you ran in to see what happened.

I'm sure it is just a matter of time before we have a broken window. They have hit the glass before, it just hasn't broken yet.
