I've spent the last four days in my back yard, sprucing up the patio and planting little green things. I've been sweeping away the winter debris and watching my kid play in the dirt and marvel at all the little shoots and sprouts that seem, to him, magically sprung from the earth. He carves away at the soil and exclaims, "Mom! A slippery snake!" I run over to see him handling a severed earth worm. "Oops," he says, "I think it got bit in half." Spring is here and its time to play outside. What do you have planned for your back yard?
