I just noticed for the first time today how much longer the days are compared to December. It was sunny for once this afternoon and it remained daylight for almost an hour longer than it did in December. It's quite refreshing to finally see that the change in the season is just around the corner. Soon it will be Valentine's Day and then after that will be March Break and then Easter. I cannot wait to be able to walk the kids to school again and to light up the BBQ and sip iced tea on the deck!
