This Week We Don't Have to Miss Idaho
We've had snow since Saturday and the kids are overjoyed. With Monday being a holiday and school canceled Tuesday and Wednesday, it's been one long week of playing in the snow. Usually around here we have a wet snow, enjoy it for a day and then it melts. The trees don't stay coated and beautiful. But this time each branch has kept it's snow coat and it looks lovely. All the different colors of pine covered in white make a beautiful panorama. If I was a photographer, I'd have it documented for you. You'll just have to take my word for it.
My children keep their coats on, shed them indoors, put them back on, shed them again. You get the idea. I'm okay with it. Hours of outdoor play makes for good hard sleep each night. And darling rosy cheeks.
Warm fires and hot cocoa create moments to be cherished.
I leave you with a question. If your husband is out of town on business and you aren't taking your child to school...how many days is it okay to go without showering?
