And not much of a desire for spring, yet. We have a good amount of snow cover taller than the grass that has lingered for more than a day, finally! I have come home from work the last two days to 4 boys romping in the snow in our yard and then moving the fun to another boy's house to build a fort and continue the romp. My Lil' Miss must be with the boys, and holds her own quite well. She is B.U.S.Y. in the snow. Who thought that putting away summer toys was a good idea? Buckets and other such summer toys are just perfect for the snow. She fills up a bucket and dumps it somewhere over and over and over again. She also builds penalty boxes for the boys' games. I don't even know. All I know, is that they COMPLAIN when it is time to come in the house with their really rosey cheeks and soaking wet clothes. Then, they collapse on the couch and are asleep in their beds before 8:00 p.m.
It was perfect packing snow that has not fallen in a very long time! They LOVE it. You know the beautiful peaceful look of a white covered yard that looks so serene? Not present in our yard, ours has snowballs of various sizes littered all over with tons of footsteps and crumpled snow.
And those wet snowpants? Well, they were still wet in the morning and needed a tumble in the dryer. Packed for more recess fun and will be donned for more after school play. With a repeat ride in the dryer. I don't mind one bit.
Look what I found!
