Spring is not all fine days and blue skies, the storms and rain are part of the mix as well. But the warmer days and water bring growth to the gardens and trees which in turn brings more food for the insects and birds. On rainy days like today, the bird song fills the backyard as they search for nectar, insects and anything else edible.
Kids can be frustrating, funny, playful and sometimes quite profound and it can be quite interesting what they pass on to you. The primary school my kids attend has a bit of a tradition, on the last day of term, if the child hasn't got in to trouble then they get to go to right choice day. A celebration and reward for making the right choices through out the term.
