This is my favorite week of the year. It doesn’t always fall on the same week on the calendar, but it always falls in April and it’s always celebrated the same way in our family. We call it “Bluebell Week” and we delay our spring break until the blue flowers bloom along the banks of Bull Run. When those sweet flowers start to chime, we heed the call and pack blankets and sunscreen and water shoes and head for the creek.
