It's March, and I should be thinking about flowers and green grass and redbud trees and forsythia.
After Thanksgiving, we had our annual Christmas door decorating contest at school. My door had a snowmen theme. Each student in my homeroom made a snowman face and decorated it in a silly way. The sign said, "We are all snow unique."
When we returned in January, I thought I would leave it up for a while longer. A few weeks passed and people were asking, "Mrs. Eck, when are you taking those snowmen down?"
"Oh, I think I will leave it up until we have a snow day," I said.
The snow day never came.
February came. "Mrs. Eck, when are you taking those snowmen down?" they asked.
"I'm keeping them up until we get at least a 2-hour delay."
The 2-hour delay never came.
But the snowmen came down today.
And spring had better come!
