We had another snow day on Tuesday. Kids home. Hubby and I working from home. General chaos that ensues when kids are cooped up too long indoors.
Around lunchtime, the kids and I bundled up and ventured outdoors. It was cold and still snowing, but it was fun to frolic with them in the yard. We tried to build a snow man, but the snow was too powdery; would have been perfect for skiing. After coming in for lunch, they ventured back out again for some more snow-time, but didn't stay long. It was time to come back inside and watch a movie.
Here's the aftermath of the snow adventure (I really need to invest in a nicer camera - my phone is a poor option for blogging):
The whole process of bundling kids up for playing in the snow is not fun, to say the least. The time, energy and sweat - whew! But, they had fun and were able to run around a bit, which was much needed.
I was hoping that by the time they were finished playing outside, both of them would crash and finally get a much-needed nap. Little Man eventually succumbed to the day's activities, but it was right before dinner, which meant I had an unhappy camper on my hands when I had to wake him up much sooner than expected.
The kids certainly are racking up the snow days. They'll be going into June at this point! They did return to their normal schedules today, thank goodness.
I heard today that every state in the country, except for Florida, has snow on the ground in some location. Yes, even Hawaii, apparently. Unbelievable.
Try to stay warm, folks. I'm already planning our summer vacation. I need something warm and sandy in which to look forward!
P.S. - Props to my University of Kentucky Wildcats for their win over Auburn last night. Yeah, War Eagles, you may have won the BCS Bowl, but you got nothin' on us in basketball. :)
