Spring is in the air at The Buckman House. And things are a-changin'.

The long awaited day has come. The tadpoles are sprouting legs. If you look closely, you will see two little legs, and feet.

Our baby girls are changing too. They are exchanging their soft fuzzy down, for their new pretty yellow feathers. And they've moved from the big plastic tupperware, into a crate.

This afternoon, I told Bella that she needed to find something educational to do while Grady & Lilly were napping. She decided to interview the chicks. She asked them questions, and then would answer herself in a high-pitched voice, and write down the answers.

Bella: So what is your favorite thing about this new cage?
Chicks: We love the space. Peep.
Bella: What is your favorite thing to eat?
Chicks: Bugs. Peep, peep.

And one of my very favorite Spring changes is new growth in our garden. My parents had a garden when I was little. I would wait for my dad to come home from work, so that we could go out to the garden and collect the tomatoes together. The smell of tomatoes fresh from the vine still takes me back.

Oh, how my husband knows me, and loves me.
These sweet little 'matoes speak to my soul!

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17
