Spring Cleaning!
By Beth Beutler
  

1     Isn't spring wonderful? It's finally starting to warm up. Do you notice the blades of grass stretching up toward the sun? The flowers are beginning to peek out as well. Soon they will be in full bloom! The trees are becoming greener, too!
 
2     Spring inspires us to think about fresh starts and new beginnings. That's probably why a lot of people do "spring cleaning." They want to open up their homes and air them out. They want to get rid of dust and clutter. They want to free their environment of a heavy, stale, dark feeling. The warmth of spring gives them energy to clean things out and start fresh.
