Mud happens.
Snow happens.
So does rain, sleet and some gloriously warm days.
Today we had both.
The day started sunny and warm and ended with a biting wind and sleet.
It’s a crazy weather month punctuated by Madison spring rituals like The Garden Show, Canoecopia, Bike-o-Rama and high school basketball tournaments.
It’s a month where I break out the mud boots and think, if but for a moment, about putting away the Sorels.
It’s a month at the cusp, full of weather surprises and the end of winter clubs.

Tomorrow, March 1, is the last day of cross-country ski club. We’ll be celebrating with ski games plus kids will each get a certificate of completion.* That’s always a proud and sad moment as some kids will be moving on to middle school and won’t be back next year. Then, I start planning for summer and coaching Girls on the Run. Girls on the Run is a new program for me, and I’m looking forward to coaching girls as they prepare for a 5K run in June. Anything that gets kids moving and outside is a good thing.

What will you be doing with kids in March 2012?

*The only reason we’ve been able to ski this winter is because Blackhawk Ski Club makes snow. Thank you Blackhawk Ski Club. See you next year.
