Looking Towards Spring

It has been quite a while since I've last posted anything. I've been a little busy. So, a quick update. I'm pregnant! Yay!!!! Our family is anxiously awaiting the arrival of baby Tomka number 4 at the end of August. Sophia is cheerfully sharing her birthday (Aug 28) with her baby brother...mind you we have no idea the gender yet but she's convinced she's having a brother so we just let her think that. We have no idea what to expect but will be thrilled with either. The baby wasn't too kind in the beginning but now that we're in the 2nd trimester, both mommy and baby seem to be happier. For that, I'm totally grateful!

I've been playing catch up since I've been finally feeling better and I'm getting things accomplished. It's always a great feeling. I'm even finishing up those "gifts" that I never quite finished before the end of the holiday season. Ooops...sorry for the delay to everyone who was hoping for something. Check the mail in the next few weeks!

We've all had a long winter and I'm so excited for Spring. Though, I have to admit here in the Pacific Northwest we have not suffered anywhere near to what the Midwest has suffered. With Spring comes all the new life we've been waiting for. Plants and flowers are budding, the weather warms, and the days are longer. I'm excited to get some time outside and so are my kids.

So, that brings me to my question. Does anyone have Spring traditions? Projects? Activities? What are you looking forward to come Spring?
