It’s really quite impossible to do school when there is snow, glorious snow, covering the yard. When I got up this morning, Daniel, David and Sarah were already dressed and pulling on snow pants.
It was 7:15 am.
I convinced the kids they should wait until at least 8 am before venturing out into our little Winter Wonderland. I felt sympathetic for those souls still snuggled in bed (why wasn’t I one of them?) who probably didn’t want to hear shrieks, no matter how joyful, that early in the morning.
Literally at the stroke of 8 am, the Three Rascals charged out the door, into the back yard. The snow was perfect – think and dense – just right for making snowballs, snowmen and snow forts.
“I wonder if this would work as a snowball?”
“If I can just carry it over to the side of the road.”
It’s important to know what to do with a good pile of fresh snow. Inviting a friend over for a game of King/Queen of the Mountain is a good place to start.
If you can’t stay on the top, at least you can have company on the bottom.
