Spring, 30 Days and Counting! – By: Hope

I have to say, living in a snow tundra is not at all fun HOWEVER, there is a light at the end of the tunnel that is getting brighter and brighter each day–literally because the days are getting longer  :).

My favorite two seasons are coming up, spring and summer.  The refreshing spring air is like a life renewing breath to the tree’s, grass, and flowers.  You just feel better when the weather gets better and then you get to play in the mud!!  Of course, going to the beach in the summer is always the best, the “bee’s knee’s” as I like to put it.

Before I can start playing outside, I have an event coming up with my family in a couple weeks that I am really looking forward too.  I am an auntie of 2 nephews and 2 nieces, all different ages, 2 are brother and sister.  Being an aunt is by far one of the greatest feelings in the world-I suppose next to being a parent, but seeing as I can’t make that comparison I will stick to my original thought.

My oldest nephew is 17 (Holy crap) and I held him the day he was born.  Now he’s super tall (taller than me I’m 5’3), smart, driven teenager with a freakin’ license.  Boggles my mind to think how fast times flies the older you get.  My niece, his sister, is a few years younger and she’s a spitfire.  She’s got the typical teenage girl attitude, talks back, and mouths off.  She is into horseback riding and has competed on many different occasions and she’s really good. Unfortunately, one nephew lives in the Midwest and I do not see him often.  He is younger, 11, also a typical youngen.  He likes all different kinds of sports and is very involved with those things.  My youngest niece just started kindergarten, holy crap, again.  She loves Frozen and is such a little girly girl-she cracks me up.  She’s also the only one who actually calls me “Auntie”; everyone else just calls me by my name.

Anyway, I got sidetracked with my family.  My oldest nephew is also in the marching band and they have a fundraiser every year at a hotel in his hometown.  It’s super fun; you get dressed up, have dinner and drinks and dance.  I’m really looking forward to it because I haven’t seen everyone in a while and it will be fun.  Hopefully the weather will hold out and be ok.

I guess talking about my 2 favorite seasons was a good segway to discuss another favorite-my family.
