will March come in like a lion or a lamb?

I am so ready for Spring. I remember the saying if March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb. I don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but I certainly do hope that March goes out like a lamb. I don’t know how much more snow and cold weather I can handle. I decided to make some handprint crafts with the kids to go along with this saying. We made handprint lions and lambs. We all know how I love me some handprint crafts. Here’s how we made them:

    Thank-you everyone! As it turned out, March came in like a lamb. I certainly hope that doesn’t mean it’s going to go out like a lion!
