Yesterday was a treat.
We got our first decent snow on Sunday evening. Yes, you heard that correctly. February 19th was our first measurable snow all year. It has been the stinkiest winter I’ve ever experienced. I live for winter. It’s my favorite season (second to fall, of course). And I love winter because of the snow. It has done nothing this winter except rain, and I’ve not liked it one single bit.
Mother nature decided to try and make amends with me on Sunday night, and she gave us about 3-4 inches of snow. The school system I work for was off on Monday for a built-in snow day, and Ben’s school system got out for the snow, so we had a snow day!
This was PB’s first experience with the snow, and he didn’t quite know what to think.
He was really frustrated with his gloves because he couldn’t grab ahold of anything. He tried to pick up a broom (a boy after his momma’s heart) and couldn’t, so he got mad and pouted. Ben took him on the sled a couple of times, but by this point, he was just mad and tired.
All in all, it was a good day to be at home with my favorite boys. It was a much needed day of extra rest for us all. Ben and I were lazy and it felt good. I loved having snow days growing up. I ate like a pig, played out in the snow until I was numb, and watched old reruns. Today was much of the same and it didn’t disappoint!
What about y’all? Have you had a lacking winter this year? Any ‘snow days’ yet? Hopeful for any more snow?
Have a blessed Tuesday 🙂
