Hello Kathleen -

Ha! it was fun that you beat me to it! ;-)

Your writing is the first one in the Flemish SignPuddle, and it is  
fine....I also added my second version there too...see attached...

The second version is a different style of writing, based on the way  
we have written the sign for Spring in ASL over many years. The 5- 
Hand is a little easier symbol for people to read, and we show the  
Position of Contact at the end of the sign, with a Grasping-Inbetween  
symbol that shows that the two hands are really holding at the end...

Sometimes a movement can be written several ways..(.just like  
English: the words BE and BEE sound the same, but written differently)
