A Spring In Our Step

 Daddy Steve:  This past Wednesday was the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere.  It's a day that we always look forward to here in Gregoropolis.  Truthfully, this past winter could barely be called a winter; it was the mildest one I can ever remember.

Kurt: And Daddy Steve can remember waaaaaay far back.
Paul: Back to the last ice age, I would imagine.

And yet, even a mild winter is still winter.  You just don't have the same sense of freedom that comes with warm days.

James: Yeah, just like the world's tastiest broccoli isn't the same as chocolate ice cream.
Randall: I can't argue with that.

Lately, the kids have been doing a lot of dreaming and planning about springtime.

Lulu et Lottie: 𝅘𝅥𝅮𝅘𝅥𝅮 Printemps, Printemps, Printemps, la-de-da-de-da! 𝅘𝅥𝅮𝅘𝅥𝅮
Emile: You realize eet ees ztill too early to plant things outzide.
Lulu: If you are ze expert on growing things, zen why are you zo short?

Meghan: We're going through our summer clothes...
Holly Belle: ...and we just realized something.
Both: We have nothing to wear!
Nathan: Oh, good grief.

Ravi: We're planning our nature observations and experiments of the summer.
Patrick: We want to wake people up to the growing climate change crisis.
Ann Marie: I'd say you've got your work cut out for you.

Mikko and Tyler: Outdoors here we come!
Anthony: Hey, come back here!  You still need to wear your coats!

Katie: It may not seem much like spring yet, but this is actually the best spot to be in.
It's all stretching out ahead of us!
Sasha: Right.  It's like we just started reading the introduction of the best story ever!

I'm always excited when I remember I haven't seen this week's gregoropolis!! yay, a treat! However, I have to say, some of us are NOT as excited for summer as others...for obvious reasons!

It's been a very grey cold wet winter even if not as cold as it could have been, so I'm with the kids celebrating that Spring's now officially arrived and we can look forward to warmer days and lighter nights.

They are right to plan, assess the empty wardrobe ;) and look forward to fun days ahead.

Cannot wait to see just what they get up to.
