We live where spring is just showing up here finally in late April and we are just now watching the grass turn green and the dandilions show their yellow faces. What is it that finally makes the grass green up every year? Extended sunshine. So if your grass is in this stage of just greening up, or if you have flowers just blooming, take your kids outside and have this object lesson. Discuss this statement and come up with all the analogies that you can: Sunshine is to the grass and flowers like love is to relationships.
