Spring has definitely sprung here in northern California! I've noticed an abundance of California golden poppies - the state flower and one of my favorites. And the other night, I actually settled down in front of the television to watch a San Francisco Giants game with my boy!
He's also settling into his first year of High School baseball . . . another sign of spring. He had "lost" his spot as starting shortstop during the preseason because he was acting a bit lazy in practice and he was not hitting well. Even though he was the starting pitcher for the league opener, he yearned to get back to the infield. When the other short stop made a few errors, the coach gave him a chance to "earn" his spot back. His fielding has been impeccable (it always has been his strength) and he's had a great on-base percentage. The other day, he was all smiles when he reported that his coach had said, "You do know that you stole your spot back and ran away with it, don't you?"
Has spring sprung where you are? What signs of spring do you see?
