Robin's Day

As part of our on-going 'Signs of Spring' project, we have been on the lookout for the first robin. We have been watching closely but no robins. So we were really excited when we were out for a walk in the neighborhood and spotted 7 robins feeding under a pine tree.
"Oh look a robin. NO! 1,2,3,4,5,6, 7 robins!" exclaimed my son
"Yay, spring is here." I said.
"Nope, if you see 7 robins then it will be 7 more days until spring." he added!

I started laughing and so he quiped, "No really that's what I've heard. If you see 1 robin then it's spring and if you see 7 robins there are 7 more days to go."

~Move over Groundhog's Day...we now have Robin's Day. Though waiting 7 more days sounds much more manageable than 6 more weeks!
