Today is the first official day of Spring !! I’ve always loved spring .. cleaning out the old, bringing in the new. Right now , there is a lot of this going on at Casa de Tango. We are doing some spring cleaning around the house as well as in our daily lives. We also put an offer in on a new(er) house. It’s not the “dream house ” we were hoping for but I’m in love with this house. We are hoping to move in early May.
I don’t know about you - It feels so good to start new and fresh … to get a do-over if you will.
Living in the upper Midwest (north Iowa) really makes you appreciate Spring and of course Summer. Winters here are usually hard to deal with. It was a pretty mild winter but still trying at times with all the snow, then ice. We are outdoor people and we are dying to get outside doing things like camping (yes I know there is winter camping but this southern girl doesn’t ) , fire pits, movies on the lawn, and lots more.
With warmer temps also means its time to plan for the summer. . After the summer fiasco of 2011 - we decided these kids need more to do over the summer. So far, we have Special Olympics Track and Field , Spring Play , Tennis and Swim for Kid 1 and 4-H, Softball, Swim and Guitar Lessons for Kid 2. I know it will be a busy summer but at least there will be less Kid Battles around the house. We also plan to throw in camping trips and a family vacation too!
