Country Kids 3.3.18

March is where Spring Begins

Yippee, we are into March and just when you might have thought the worst throws of winter must surely be behind us we have been hit by our first significant snow in 10 years! School has been shut for 3 days in anticipation of snow but on Thursday it finally arrived for us and the kids wasted no time enjoying it into the dark. It is hard to believe spring is knocking on the door, but the spring flowers and our first baby lamb confirms that is really is all about to change. Spring is my favourite season and I can’t wait to see our field full of bouncing baby lambs. I hope you have managed to make the most of the snow days. As ever the link up is below. 

Guidelines for Joining in: 

  • Post must be predominantly outdoors such as in the garden, the park, the woods or the beach with crafting, learning, exploring or playing.
    • Despite the title, both countryside and urban outdoor adventures are welcome.
    • Unheated covered areas like a barn or tent count as outdoors.
  •  Please comment on my host post and a minimum of 3 others of your choice.
    • If you use #CountryKids when commenting the post owner will know where your found them and hopefully come back to visit your post.

  • Linked posts should be written and made live within the last 2 months.
    • I understand sometimes you need to do catch up posts and write about something from a couple of months ago but the publish date should be within 2 months.
