My Love/Hate Relationship...with spring!

I believe I remember saying something here a few weeks ago about "bring on spring."

Springtime has always been my absolute favorite time of the year...sunshine, flip flops, tulips, watching my son play baseball, worshiping a Risen Savior, the end of school and celebrating everyone in my family's birthday.

Well, I take it all back!!! ;) Ever since we moved to East TN, I suffer tremendously this time of year despite the year-round allergy shots and other treatments I am on! 

Okay, it's still my favorite time of year, BUT this week has been rough I will admit. In fact, I had to postpone my weekly seminar with the City of Greeneville as a result, which means I have nothing to report as far as that goes.

But I do have a few other exciting things to report!


Two of my awesome coaches helped me put up this lovely Creation Health display which sits right inside the entrance to the Takoma Cafe. It is our hope that people will learn and memorize what each letter in the CREATION acronym stands for and then we can have a fun little contest to see who knows their letters!


I also had the privilege of working with the kiddos out at Tusculum View two times again this month. As usual, I used fun activities and demonstrations to discuss letters C-R-E-A the first time I came to see them and then did the same for letters T-I-O-N during my second visit. And now that we are having such nice weather, we were able to go outside at the end of our time together both times I was there!

Hope you are enjoying this beautiful spring weather, maybe next week will not be so rough for all of us who suffer from allergies! :)
