It's snowing! We've been here just over a year and we finally got SNOW! Lookit! Lookit! Isn't it beautiful?! The children all got off the bus, peed, then RAN back out the door with sleds. (Okay, they peed in the toilet - happy now?) The dogs ... well, you can see that my baby, Patches isn't thrilled. Her brother, Flash, wouldn't even go out into it.
When the kids came tramping into the house, cold and wet and demanding cocoa (I'm out), they started stripping at the front door. I thought I'd raised them better than that, but I guess I was wrong. Thankfully, they're all dry and warm and settled in. Ready to start their homework. Do teachers give homework on days that it snows? They really shouldn't.
I was in the fourth grade classroom today where I volunteer, and the kids were working on snowman math. They all kept stopping to look out the windows. So did I. There's nothing more BEAUTIFUL than falling snow! I left early so I could drive home in it and marvel at its wintry whiteness.
Are you tired of my gushing snow post yet? I'm so excited! Can you tell? LOOK AT IT!! IT'S SNOW, FER PETE'S SAKE!!!!!
And last we have a picture of my house, lightly dusted with snow. And badly in need of a paint job. Any volunteers? I'll buy the paint.
Until I write again ...
