Pssst! For those participating in this challenge, we’ve reached the final week! Let’s do it!
When will spring come?
Through the end of 2021, we had a pretty mild winter. The early part of January has brought some winter weather, but still nothing too crazy.
At the time I write this, I’m not sure we’ve had a total of 10-12 inches all winter.
Still, something likely will be brewing in February or March. It always happens that time of year around here anyway. We feel like we are out of the woods and then… WHAM! Hello snow dump.
I have to be honest, though. This winter hasn’t been that bad. We’ve had a pretty mild time in regard to snow and temps. We’ve had some brutally cold days, and a couple of small snow days, but overall, it’s been pretty good to deal with.
I haven’t had too much of a problem with it as Harper has absolutely loved the snow. She has had to figure out how to go with the weather changing, but she’s adapted. She’s had no issues walking on the really cold days, or through the snow. She loves to run in the snow, too. I have to be honest – when Harper gets the zoomies in the snow it’s been a riot to watch.
But what will spring bring with everything going on in the world?
For me, it will bring more time for adventures with Harper.
It will mean some baseball and so much more. With Harper approaching her 1-year birthday (April 29), the spring should bring some fun with her as she continues to grow.
It also means dock diving is coming!
My goal for Harper and I when it comes to dock diving this year is to have the ability to rent the pool we go to for a 30-minute block without having to have a lesson etc, with it. That will allow me to set up cameras around it, record and do different things video and photowise with that time – all while allowing Harper to dive and swim and have a blast!
As I write this post, I look outside and see snow on the ground and snow coming out of the sky. Spring won’t happen for a few months, but there’s definitely a lot to look forward to, and I’ll be happy when it comes.
For now, though, I’ll enjoy the winter the best that I can and let Harper have her fun in the snow!

I agree, just when you think it’s over, there’ll be another cold phase. Last year we had a dusting of snow as late as mid April I think.
Very cool that Harper enjoys running around in the snow!
