Reason to Celebrate

Spring has officially arrived on the calendar, but I am generally skeptical about the end of the snow this early in the year. I am going to be optimistic this weekend, though...as you read this, my husband has taken me to a homeschool conference. I find the idea of purchasing our grade 5 books early AND for a good price very exciting. When I talked to the Duck about it, oddly she did not share in my excitement - ? "Mom, could I just work on finishing grade 4 before we look at next year?" OK

For show and tell today, I have some great pictures:

Some true signs and symptoms of spring are everywhere these days. These crocus pictures are from around our neighbourhood. It was even a lovely, sunny day today to take the shots.






BUT...the real, most exciting sight is this picture:




Do you recognize it? It is my rhubarb starting to push through! I think I love rhubarb the most because it is free groceries! That is my reason to celebrate.


As I mentioned above, I am away this weekend, but I will visit your show and tell posts early next week - I always enjoy them!


For more Show and Tell, go see Mary!

I wish I was able to steal away in your suitcase. I won't be able to make it to a hs confrence this year. But that is probably a good thing b/c I am suppose to use what I have already bought over the years. [0; I hope you share what you did get this week-end later on.

I LOVED your pics as always. I also had to chuckle what your dd had to say about looking at her grade 5 curriculum.

Blessings and ((HUGS)) my SSiC

Your crocus looks beautiful! Our homeschool conference is coming up this month and I'm looking forward to it! My daughter will be entering 9th grade this fall...yikes! So I'm trying to figure out what to get for her this year.
Have a Blessed weekend!

Yes, my rhubarb is peeking through, also, although my crocuses didn't survive the lastest snow "pack" *sigh*
I see you're over here on blogger, also, now. I have to admit, the pages sure load faster and putting up pictures is a SNAP!

I love rhubarb! I look forward to it every spring, too, but mine comes from the store, so it's not free groceries. It sure does make good pie, though.

I am so excited about Spring too. From the looks of it, I think we are a little ahead of you. I haven't looked at my rhubarb yet, but I have a favorite perennial that is starting to get new buds and I'm so thrilled. Also, the daffodils are coming out. Love your pics.
