But fear not for there are buds and blooms beginning to peak out on the branches of other trees!
Today's conversation of the day:
As 1st grade child was walking to his mother's car at the end of the day, he suddenly turned around and ran up to his teacher who was on duty.
Teacher (leaning down to the child): "Is everything okay? Did you forget something?"
Child (grabbing her face in his hands): "Oh Mrs. Teacher! I'm going to miss you so much when I go to college!"
