It snowed! The first snow of the winter is always exciting, and it really is hard to beat fresh snow and blue skies.
It started snowing on Saturday morning, and snowed into Sunday morning.
Despite the snow falling heavily, my little girl was determined to get outside as soon as there was enough snow on the ground to build a snowman. So, come Saturday afternoon, while I listened to Christmas music and watched them from the warmth inside, she and her brother went out and built their first snowman of the winter. They got soaked, as the snow continued to fall, but they didn’t care.
It was snowing!
The following day, we were back out by 8am.
There was something truly beautiful about the early morning sunshine glistening on the snow and my daughter was thrilled with the blanket of white.
The snow can be disruptive and annoying, but it is also beautiful and the kids love it. As the winter goes on and the snow continues and lingers, I will try my very best to see it with my children’s eyes. As something magical and fun, not cold and wet.
I began these ‘Snapshots’ posts over the summer, when my days were too busy having fun with my kids to spend time writing about the fun we were having. They are a way for me to record the moments, but not feel obliged to write War and Peace. Capture the days as they happen. No SEO, no pinnable images, no stress. So, I’m going to continue to write them, and keep those moments from running away.
