Not Enough Snow

As I mentioned, we were supposed to get this mega-storm that was going to drop 18 inches of snow. Schools were closed, people were gearing up for the worst, and the storm turned out to be way more tame than anyone expected. I'm not complaining, though the fact that the storm was milder than anticipated meant that our school was open, and our usual itinerary of activities was going on as scheduled. The kids were happy about this, but I was ready to spend the day at home, snowed in and doing home improvement projects, namely painting.

Instead, we had pottery, two rehearsals, then library story hour. A full day of activities, none of it spent at home. Oh well, like any parent knows, you have to be flexible and able to adapt when you're taking care of the kids, because you never know what life is going to throw at you.

On a bright note (there is always a bright note), not to mention an interesting bit of irony, the fact that we had this late snowstorm that literally came out of nowhere resulted in the kids building their first and probably only snowman of the season. Last year we build a snowman army, we had so much snow. It was amazing. This year, we never seemed to get around to it, until now. The kids went outside and whipped them together in a matter of minutes. Pretty impressive stuff, if you ask me. They even made a snow dog to go along with him

Until the next time, thanks for reading.
