Buds and basketball and fresh blue sky...walks to visit the other neighborhood flocks...dark brown earth with just a little more green pipping up everyday...rain storms that, while still chilly, smell like soil and leaves...and, oh yes, the first ice cream of the season.  (And, I think, maybe the first of his life even?)  I'm officially calling it--Winter is over, Spring has begun!
