Beat the Doldrums...Day 10...For the Birds

A sign of spring? 
The temperature did get above freezing today...maybe it will be a trend.  
We headed to Grandma and Grandpa's for the annual corned beef and cabbage dinner...a bit late, but it took this long to get everyone healthy.
 A beautiful Easter Lily
 A downy woodpecker taking off...
 A tufted titmouse in flight and a goldfinch
 A hungry housefinch
 It's hard to catch a chickadee sitting still
 Goldfinches changing to their summer colors....

Beat the Doldrums....Day 9...Let's Go Fly a Kite

 It looks like a picture perfect kite flying day....and it was....for a short time....because what you can't tell by the photos is that the wind chill was 25 degrees at kite flying time. 
 Gracie "trick" kite was very tricky to fly.
 It didn't take long to become numb to the cold
 Luke was great at flying his airplane kite....notice the snowbanks....there was nothing melting today.
 This is my go to camera angle for kite flying.
 Mark was  very "cool" and only lasted for about 10 minutes outside.

 Three kites in the air.
 Luke used this technique a few times. 
 I was just about frozen when Dad got home from work and helped detangle some troubles.
 Dad giving advice.....You can notice I'm getting farther away in the photos...I was sneaking over the hill to get warm.

Luke makes me smile!!!

 Luke has some big plans for this year!

Beat the Doldrums--Day 6--Birds, Sprouts and Reading Aloud

 We had a brand-new visiting the past few days....a Fox Sparrow.  It is just beautiful!!  It took 2 days to identify it since an unnamed child has lost our birdbook.  I expect we will only see this guy for just a few more days because his summer habitat is north of us and its winter habitat is south of us.  
I'm just really, really glad it stopped by this year! 
 Our beautiful pilliated woodpecker showed up today....WE LOVE OUR "WOODY THE WOODPECKER"
 Luke had a new pretty little tree sparrow visiting his homemade feeder today. 
Another happy sight today was the surprise of finding so many of our flower seeds sprouting.  We only planted them two days ago, so it was a sweet surprise to find our little plants. 
Begone...doldrums!!
I also have joined the Read Aloud Revival site.  They are offering a limited $5 monthly fee to try it our and see how you like it.  We read everyday....A LOT!  And I love all the suggestions, fun ideas and books list to help you build your world around books.
