The phone rang at 5:54 yesterday morning. No school! We made banana crunch muffins for breakfast. We then tackled our snow suits and headed outside. The girls grabbed their sleds. We ran outside to the hill. The sleds would not move more than a few feet. With disappointed faces, we realized that the snow was too slushy for sledding. However, we discovered that we could make snowballs. After a few snowball throws, we made a family of snowmen. As I was all alone with our snow people, I realized that all three girls were waiting at the door to go inside. I guess our play in the snow was already over. Time for hot chocolate by the fire while we read Snowmen at Night and imagine what our snow people will be doing this evening.
