We have been tilling gardens and even planting a few things. I have been running outside and taking my kids biking. My son has been working with his goats and training them for harness and pack. It is so hard to imagine that I got sunburned yesterday and today. I need to make some sunscreen to use. Which is so odd for me to even think of making sunscreen in March. I normally start to make it the end of May or beginning of June.
It has been so nice that it has s been hard to focus on doing school. My kids are so lucky that we home school because they got to enjoy this wonderful weather. We even saw our first snakes of the season. Not my favorite especially when one was very big. But they came out to enjoy the sunshine too!! We saw 2 Eastern Garter Snakes like this one below. One was quite large and the other a bit smaller. It was very curious and kept coming towards us. Which really freaked us out. I am not a snake person. It eventually turned around and went the other way. This was the third snake I saw in about 10 minutes. I had seen enough snakes for the day so we promptly left the trails!
