Welcome Spring!


Springtime

Oh, spring came to my garden
And caught it unaware
Wearing just a few old leaves
And a dejected air.
But when spring left my garden,
Its work so deftly done,
Many, many Daffodils
Were dancing in the sun.

-Velma D. BATES.

I'm so jealous -- we are miles away from a full-blown daffodil here. But, we are down to a foot of snow to melt, so I will just have to wait.

I'm considering you as a yes for the swap. I know you can do it!

And, I stumbled on the cutest free font yesterday that was a PTOE looking one. I somehow spaced where that was and then saw your carbon post and tried and tried to find it again...to no avail.

p.s. I'm in a homeschool info gathering mode...planning/hoping/knowing to start in the fall. I will hope you will let me ask lots of questions and will need every one of your lesson posts to help me through!
