First Day of Spring

You know that that means. Free Rita's!

This morning, on the way to a MOMS Club activity, Peeper and I were talking about all the trees that are blooming around town (beautiful!) and I told her that it's because it's spring time.

She asked me something about "Why it's spring time? Why it's not Leprechaun Day?"

Then I was telling her that it's the first day of spring, and that it's called the Vernal Equinox. I reminder her what she learned about Winter Solstice in her book Lights of Winter: Winter Celebrations Around the World, and told her a bit more about the equinox.

This evening, she was playing in the backyard, throwing rocks around, saying "We're doing this for Solstice Day!"

Close enough.
