Are We There Yet #Springflingkidlit

Spring has sprung! (At least so says my tulips and the kids' Spring Break schedule.) To celebrate the season, Ciara O'Neal and Kaitlyn Sanchez are hosting the Spring Fling Kidlit challenge. Enter here.   The basics: Choose a kid-appropriate gif to inspire a 150-word of less story for kids 12 and under.  The Spring Fling contest officially begins on Saturday  April 1st  and closes April 3rd.  I was inspired by this gif of a whale mom and baby migrating, a journey that starts in April.  Aww! So cute! (Gif Link) Are We There Yet?  By Lauri C. Meyers   The ocean warms with spring. Gulls have taken wing.   The current’s pull is strong And hums migration’s song.   Mama whale conveys  The change of coming days,                      “Northern waters call!” But baby tries to stall.    I like this seaweed reef  That tickles me beneath.                                      “There’s a world to see!                                       Come explore with me.”
