Springing into a new season...with a crazy spring contest!


Spring has sprung around here. What's that mean? My flowers are sproinging to life, deadlines are looming, and my teaching job kicks into high gear with standardized testing. Busy, busy, busy as the bees on my lavender plants! I thought I'd provide some fascinating facts that you might not know about the zingy, springy month of April.



- Of the eight US presidents who died in office, three died in April.


-April is the first month of the year with exactly 30 days and the only month with an “i” in its name.



-“April” is an anagram of “pilar” which means “hairy”.



-April begins on the same day of the week as July every single year.


April also means it's time to spruce up my newsletter subscriber list, so I'm doing an extra fun contest. The details are in my YouTube video so click the link and check it out if you'd like to participate. https://youtu.be/j0ac0Xp0560

Finally, tell me what you love about spring!
