Today, we woke up to snow all over the ground and huge flakes falling. Remi wanted to go outside immediately and build a snowman. He was a bit disappointed that school wasn't canceled because it meant we had to get ready and leave instead of play in the snow all morning.
I ended up getting him ready first and letting him play while I got me and RoBear ready.
When I looked out the window to check on him, I saw him eating snow off his tractor. It reminded me of how I used to love eating the snow as a kid.
I just love the snow! I can do without the ice, but the snow I love. I love the way it sounds crunching under my boots and the way it makes me want to be in the kitchen cooking up a warm meal. Besides seeing the smiling faces of my boys playing in it, my favorite is naptime on a snowy day... nothing better than the kids being cozily tucked in while curling up with a good book.
Here they are as we are headed out to drop Remi off at school...
