As I tucked them in last night, they began to imagine the all fun they would have in the snow. Building snowmen, sledding, and snow ball fights would fill their day off from school.
Sadly, when they awoke (before the crack of dawn) I had to break the news to them. Snow had fallen, but only a couple of inches. School was not cancelled, and the snow would most likely be melted before my oldest's return from kindergarten.
So, what else was a mom to do? Yes, the sun had not risen and was very dark. It was well below freezing. But there was snow on the ground, and the boys couldn't miss it.
We bundled up and went out!
We followed animal tracks.
The baby loved his first real experience in the snow.
I'm so thankful I get to spend these special moments with my boys.
(even though I froze my fingers off!)
