Well spring is in full bloom here in New Hampshire. Everywhere we look we can see signs of the season. Personally this is my favorite season, although fall is a close second now that I am an avid photography hobbyist. Something about the spring time, makes me feel rejuvenated and peaceful all at the same time. The sounds, smells, and sights. I did a simple exercise with my children this weekend were I had them sit on our deck and be as still as they could for 5 minutes. I had them use there senses to take in the sights, sounds and smells of spring. I wasn't sure how this was going to go over, but after about a minute the birds returned to the feeder that was very close to where we were sitting. They really enjoyed getting a close up look at some of our feathered friends and were actually continued to observe the birds well over the five minutes.
