Spring 2018 Bucket List

Well...winter is officially over and it's the first day of spring 2018! I'm so thankful!

Normally, I'm content is any season (fall is my favorite, then spring, then winter, then summer), but, this year, once we got past that first good snow, I was ready for spring! Winter seemed to just drag on and on! I'm so glad it's spring! 

“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease" (Genesis 8:22).

Here are some of the things that I'm looking forward to this spring and hope to accomplish throughout the course of the season...

1. Write my spring bucket list
2. Plan my spring menus (these will be posted each Monday in my weekly Happy Homemaker Monday posts)
3. Read the account of Christ's death and resurrection out of all four gospels 🕮
4. Dye Easter eggs 
5. Have an egg hunt for the grandlittles
6. Do a nighttime egg hunt
7. Watch Jesus of Nazareth 
8. Eat a Russell Stover's Maple Cream Egg with my oldest daughter on her birthday (it's tradition!)

10. Pick a bouquet of pretty yellow daffodils

12. Attend KCM's Victory Campaign 2018 in Branson
13. Celebrate Passover by reading the Biblical account and preparing (or attending) a seder meal
