Spring on a River Town

Most of the eagles have flown away to their summer home, and the ice has all melted into the bubbly waters of the Mighty Miss. Each day, more and more tourists walk down the main road stopping in the little shops. If you look closely, the trees have a greenish hue to them, and there are robins on the now bare lawns.

Spring is here!

I've sort of gotten a new job since moving here, I am subbing in the local school district. I've only done it a half dozen times so far, but I am praying it will lead to a full time position next year.

March was a different month. Kevin traveled a lot, heading to Germany, France, and China. I'm so happy he is finally home for awhile! Spring break happened while he was gone, so I didn't even have an opportunity to work for a whole week. It was a long week! Allison got to come home for a long weekend, and it was so great to see her!

But now, it's April. The sun is shining a little higher in the sky, and a little longer in the evening. The temperatures aren't quite up to normal yet, but the ground is almost ready to plant a few early plants. I've got a bag of onion sets  in the garage, and I may get them started today!
