equal night

round sugar cookies half frosted with chocolate

half night, half day

It wasn't as big as our solstice blowout in December, but we did our part to observe the equinox today. Despite the snow in the forecast for tomorrow we took down our snowflakes from the window and replaced them with construction paper flowers, and we made the equinox cookies you see above. I wish I had recorded Lijah's excited explanation of the spring equinox, and how it relates to cookies half-covered with chocolate; he really got the idea, only he wished they were winter solstice cookies in order to have more chocolate.

With the coming of spring we're trying to get back into a little more focused schoolwork—unschooling kind of focused, which means that making cookies totally qualifies. I don't know about harvesting icicles and snow cakes to sell out of the playhouse, but they had fun with that. A fine way to welcome spring.
