Today my daughter and I pull up to the school, and she lets out a faint gasp.
"What?" I ask her.
"Look at how light it is today! I hadn't really noticed it until today. Right this minute. But look!"
I pick up my bag and look around. I, too, notice the difference in the 7:00 am light and say, "This must be a sign that spring is near."
After school, I look around and notice things are a-changing.
Red maples open their doors,
greeting us with hello.
Yes, spring is coming!
