It's still cold out, the snow is still prevalent, but spring is on the horizon. The days are getting longer, the temperature during the day is hovering in the 40s, and we are starting to see mud, which for the record is my least favorite aspect of spring, but you can't have it all, right?
Last week we had one last snow storm and not only was it a surprise, but it was kind of a bummer, as well. This meant more snowmelt come spring, not to mention more shoveling for me. The kids, on the other hand, put a brighter spin on things and went out and played in the snow. Since it's warmer, the snow was perfect for making snowmen, and that's what they did.
N went off on his own and did lots of shoveling and snowman building, and at some point I helped him out. We built a big one and then an army of smaller ones. It was fun, and good to get out of the house. Not to be outdone, A went and made a snow-DJ, complete with headphones and computer console. It was pretty impressive, not to mention too cute for words.
It just goes to show you, with the right attitude, you can make the most of any situation. Youth helps, too.
Until the next time, thanks for reading.
