It is 7:00 in the morning & I just found out that we are having a snow day. Wooo-hooo! Not a flake has fallen from the sky - but it is supposed to be a doozy of a storm today, so I am happy to stay home and watch it from the window instead of being stuck on the highway trying to get home from school. Hopefully CJ will make it back okay this evening (his job is about 20 minutes away). I am excited to finally get Paul out in the snow to actually play in it. Up till now we have had several mild snowfalls (1-3 inches) that melted quickly. What kind of winter is that!?!? We did take him sledding one day, but the temperature was in the teens so we only stayed about 10 minutes. And even then you could see the grass poking up through the snow. Sad. One of my fondest childhood winter memories is taking our sleds to the school parking lot across the street. The snowplows would push the snow into these massive piles and we would sled down the truck-made hills for hours. The best was when you would hit the section at the bottom and go flying down onto the pavement. Good times.
For now, I need to wait for the almost-winter-solstice-darkness to end before we can do anything fun. Oh, and for some snow to fall. heehee.
