Spring is right around the corner, and for a lot of the nation, that means more time spent outdoors! Our favorite past time is going outside with a blanket, and laying in the grass and watching the clouds move by.

We have also been busy creating lots of high quality weather printables thhat will go along beautifully with any study on the different types of weather.
