So, this was the week of Storm Stella. After predictions of 12-18 inches of snow for Tuesday, in the end we *only* got about 7 inches. Still a fair amount, but nowhere near as bad as it could have been!
All in all, it’s been a good week.
My eldest won a medal in the 100 yard Breast Stroke at the YMCA New England Championships on Sunday, coming in 8th place, in a competition that brings together the best swimmers from YMCA swim teams across New England. He knocked 10 seconds off his personal best! He was thrilled and we are so proud of him. He also knocked a second off his 50 yard Breast Stroke time, placing 13th in this event, an amazing achievement at this level. Massive proud mum moment here.
Monday evening saw a snow day for Tuesday announced in preparation for the arrival of Storm Stella. My husband worked from home too, so we had a bonus ‘weekend’ day which was lovely. Pancakes for breakfast, lunch together and no sports getting the way of eating dinner as a family. A delayed start the following day gave us another lie in, and a welcome slow start to the day!
The snow we did get was wet and heavy and hard to clear. It turned to sleet and rain as the day went on, making for a tough job for the snow plows as well as homeowners. And, any snow not shoveled before early evening froze solid overnight, which made for an interesting morning!
It might not have been great snow for building, but it was still fun, and snow angels are a must.
This little girl loves the snow. That face says it all!
We’re ending the week with the final swim meet of the winter season, a birthday party and the last winter soccer skills class. I hope the weather takes note of the end of the winter sports season… Spring would be nice now. I’ll just ignore the forecast of snow for tomorrow!
Hope you’ve all had a lovely week. Head over to my Instagram feed to see the rest of this week’s 365 photos…
