Good Morning Spring~!

It's was so great to lay in bed this morning and listen to all the song birds sing their mating songs.. The sun was peeking up in the East and the window was open to smell the good smells of Spring.
I love this time of year when I can open up the windows in the house and let the warm air filter into the house.. 
Going to Springville School this morning to help Mrs. Wittenburg's 2nd grade class..  I just love going to her class on Monday andThursdays..  It is so rewarding to help these little ones with their reading, spelling and math.. 
It's almost time for Ben to get here this morning. He is going to Pre-School . I'll drop him off on my way to Mrs. Wittenburg's room.  He has been so sick with a virus this week.. I went over Tues and Wednesday to take care of him while his Mom went to work.  On Tues. his temperature was 102 and he was so sick. He said "GranAnnie just pray to God for me that he can take this virus away".. So we prayed.. It was so cute, he layed there with his hands folded.. Yesterday when I went to see him he told me he knew God was listening because he was feeling so much better.  I told him I was very happy, God loves us so much and doesn't like it when we are sick. When I left him yesterday afternoon he was jumping on the trampoline and feeling good.
    I look outside the window this morning and see the grass is getting so green, and by next week well need mowing. YIKES~!  that's too early.  The flowers are blooming and the trees are leafing out.  This is way to early for this to happen. So we well just trust that April well be a warm month too.:)

Ben washing the Benny Mobile

Ben had a sleep over on Saturday night. We went to church on Sunday morning and after we got home we had his favorite dinner.. Spaghetti  ~ He ate quite a bit..  We went outside because it was such a nice day.. He was getting bored with blowing bubbles and drawing with chalk on the sidewalk and making beautiful flowers.  So I got a paint brush and a bucket of clean water. We made letters and wrote our names on the cement driveway.. Then he decided that the Benny Mobile needed the windows washed.  What a fun time he had doing that ~ kids love playing in the water..  Ben asked me "Why do you call this car the Benny Mobile".. I told him that when he was born that is when I bought the Chevy Equinox.  I took care of him and the money that I made taking care of him paid for the that is why it's called "The Benny Mobile".. He said "I'm glad you took care of me when I was a baby".. I told him I was glad I got to take care of him too..
Benny is 5 now and is growing up fast. He likes to do boy things like burp and fart..  He loves to be read too and he talks a lot~!~! He goes to pre-school for now and next year he will go to Kindergarten.
My knee is getting better ~ but still in a lot of pain. Thank goodness for pain pills and ice.  The knee is good, it's next to the knee that hurts, on the outside. Soft tissue issues and swelling.. It will go away someday and all will be better.
Weather is unseasonably warm right now.  Spring is here too soon. Flowers are blooming, leaves are sprouting on the trees and I just hope April doesn't bring cold weather and ruin it all..  Farmers are in the field stirring up the dirt and getting ready for planting season..  I'll just enjoy each day the Lord gives to me and wait what comes tomorrow.. I always tell people if you don't like todays weather wait until tomorrow..
