Wednesday was the first day of spring. What's your favorite part of this season?
Shelby Sutter, Sophomore, Enochs High School
Being able to walk around barefoot.
Dominique Germann, Senior, Central Valley High School
I love the weather and being able to wear a light jacket and capris.
Maggie White, Senior, Valley Charter High School
Well, I tend to assume that everyone's favorite part of spring is celebrating my birthday (which is April 15, in case anyone would like to start planning me a surprise party). To add some diversity, I'll say that I love this season because summer is just around the corner!
Emily Hoeksema, Senior, Ripon Christian High School
My favorite part of spring is the simple joy, celebration and excitement associated with the warm weather and longer days of sunshine. There seem to be so many opportunities to just have fun and celebrate life!Patrick Germann, FreshmanCSU Stanislaus
The best part of spring is the nice weather. Mother Nature can be bipolar at times during these few months, and allergies for myself as well as others can be killer. But when it's sunny with a slight breeze under a cloudless sky, there's no part of the year I enjoy better.
Brooke Anderson, Junior, Ceres High School
Spring is by far my favorite season. From loving spring sports to having warmer weather, I just love it. It's as if all the plants and trees are born again as they grow back their leaves as each is vibrant with color. It is definitely the season with the best weather and the most beautiful nature.
Gabriella Germann, Freshman, Central Valley High
The amazing outfit options make spring a season I really like; I can finally wear shorts in public! Also, I love looking forward toward Easter and my release from school.
Haley Smith, Sophomore, Johansen High School
My favorite part of spring is the weather and nature. The flowers and sunny sky are just so beautiful this time of year.
Julie Fogarty, Sophomore, Central Catholic High School
Everything! I love the warm, sunny days, especially since it means I get to bust out my shorts and flip flops. Then there's the beginning of soccer season and the promise of summer just around the corner. The only thing I can honestly say I'm not excited about is the wind and pollen. That's the worst, especially when the wind messes with my warm weather!
