All four seasons at the sticky table

We have been experiencing what seems like all four seasons in one month! The weather has gone from a few warm sunny days to a few days with with blizzard like conditions to days with lots of rain or very strong winds.  With all this crazy weather, it has been a good time of year to explore the weather of all four seasons…

To get us thinking about the four seasons, we read “My Favorite Time of Year” by Susan Pearson.  I have had this book a very long time and although this book does a nice job illustrating all four seasons, it is a little on the long side as far as the story goes – so we did a little reading and picture surfing through the book…
