I have lived in Georgia my whole life. I can not remember a winter season where we have had so many winter “events.” It has been one fun winter for my children. When we woke up this morning, Mikayla was very excited to see a pretty good dusting of snow on the ground. As the day progressed, the snow started coming down very heavy and very thick. I don’t know if I have ever seen such big snowflakes!
We had plans to meet my friend, Hilary (we have been BFFs since we were 13!) and her son, Bryce for lunch and since the roads weren’t bad we decided to go forward with our plans. As we were leaving, I snapped this picture of the house.
After we got home, I suited up the kids and we headed out to play. We had a great time! We didn’t last a long time, though. This was a very cold and WET snow. After about 45-60 minutes everyone was ready and happy to go inside. I was envisioning have to drag a screaming Gavin inside, but when I asked him if he was all done and ready to go “night, night” he said, “Okay!” Don’t they look absolutely thrilled to be in the snow again. We have had so much this year, I fear that they make think this is normal. The kids had a great time helping making the snowman. Gavin was very good at “pat, pat, pat”-ing the snow in place. Mikayla did a great job of finding us “accessories” for the snowman.
The kids tried to sled, but it wasn’t icy enough and we don’t have a very big hill in our front yard. That resulted in me dragging them all over the yard. At least I don’t have to feel guilty about skipping the gym this morning.
Well, as much fun as I have had with all of this snow, I am very ready for spring and the warm weather that accompanies it. I have also affirmed to myself that while snow is nice in small doses, I would never choose to live in an area of the country that had this all winter. I don’t think I would survive! ;)
