Grandkids and spring

Starting Sat afternoon the invasion of the grandchildren will commence. By Sunday I will have six children seven and under causing havoc and mayhem at my house. They are coming in batches and will go home the same way. This way I will only have all six together for a day or so. I am looking forward to it. My grandchildren talk to me. I have told the sixteen year old I am going to need his help when I have both toddlers. They are both into anything and everything. My grandson is two and a half and weighs in at forty plus and wears 4t-5t. My granddaughter is a year and a half, weighs in at under twenty and still wears nine month sized clothes. I need to get a picture of the two of them together.
I have started my courses. Training videos have not improved over the years. The woman in the first one is just down right creepy. This is just a crash review. The knowledge is coming back better than I had expected.I hope to be done with this part in just a couple of weeks. I still need BLS and a TB test. I will schedual those for week after next. Have I mentioned I am nervous? Scared? At times terrified?
Hoping for some rain this weekend. We are so dry. I cannot remember ever having red flag (fire) warnings in February and March before. We should be hitting tht rainy season and we are dry as dust. It does not bode well for this summer.
I love spring. I love the flowers and the warm weather. I love the first green of spring. In just a few weeks (if we get some rain) things should be greening up nicely. The mountain laurels and the red bud trees are in bloom. Wild flowers are begining to pop out. I haven’t seen any blue bonnets yet. They should show up soon,although they there won’t be near as many this year as years past. Blue bonnets like a wet fall. Ours was not that wet.  Still,blue bonnets in any number mean spring.
Spring signifies hope.
We all need hope.
