Fun With Snow
Here today, gone tomorrow. When it FINALLY starts to snow for the first time all winter, and the weatherman explains that it will turn to rain and be gone by the morning, your kids will likely cry.
Because they have school. And indoor recess.
So, if you want to make your kids smile while simultaneously causing the neighbors to think you are insane, here’s what you do:
You shovel your sidewalk and driveway and shove it to the covered porch. Or until your arms feel like they’ll fall off. Pictured: Shovel #1
And you let them play in the snow before school, while it’s still snowing. And the dog doesn’t know what to think. So when the kids throw a snowball, the dog thinks it’s a real ball and ‘catches’ it then looks around to see where it went. The dog may also wonder why their mouth is suddenly full of cold water.
And when the children come home and begin their homework, you say, “You can do homework later! Go play!” And the children look at you for a moment as if you truly have lost your marbles, then run outside cheering!
Ground too hard to do snow angels? I thought this was hilarious!
I love watching the kids play in the snow while staying warm INDOORS.
And I love, when they have something really cool to show me… like the secret fort they built WITHIN the snowman… that I can hand off the camera to the eldest and still stay INDOORS.
Goodbye, snow. It was fun while it lasted… and kind of freaky that you left behind green grass.
