This week I have the first stanza of poem about spring and some pictures of spring activities. Hopefully everyone had a nice and relaxing Mother’s Day although with children that always seems to be an oxymoron.  Personally I consider it a successful Mother’s Day when I can actually eat my dinner while it’s warm.
It seems to happen the same every year-the winter months we are scrounging for things to do and then in May we are swamped every weekend! 
Last weekend, my kids and I were fortunate enough to be invited to a graduation party, our first Tiger Scout event, and I went to the zoo on the school field trip. 
“Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.”

        Robert Frost, 1915

I hope everyone else is enjoying this weather and using it to garden, walk, open the windows, or just sit outside. 

The library is hosting the last Pre Chautauqua event Sunday, May 17 at 4:00 p.m.  This is a discussion with two professors from Metropolitan Community College, Art Durand and Amy Forss, about an overview of the Great Depression.  This is a free program that is open to the public.

Art in the Yard will be a great event at Parmele House on Sunday, May 24th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.  Check out Carroll Hudson’s website to get all the details-this promises to be an exciting and progressive event in Plattsmouth.
Have a great week everyone!
