The signs of spring are coming!

Today was such a beautiful day here in sunny Bakersfield.  I loved that I could open the windows and the back door and let the kids run out and play in the yard.  The weather was warm, the sun was shining and the turtle has emerged! 

Our sweet little desert turtle has been in hibernation since October and has since been renamed, Four (formerly known as Princess Turtle).  She is our own little reclusive version of the ground hog, a private predictor of the coming of warmer weather.  Her emergence today gave us hope and joy for the end of our bitterly cold and wet winter.

Welcome back, Four!
