The Last of Our Snow


The snow we got last Sunday lasted until yesterday! I thought that must be some kind of record. Even on the few days we have had snow in the past, it usually melts within a day or two. This time, we had very cold (well for Arkansas anyway) temperatures with lows in the single digits and the snow stuck around for the whole week. By Thursday, enough had melted that the children could no longer sled down the hill. By Friday, we only had snow in a few places in the backyard. That didn't stop the children from enjoying it until the last minute. This snowman Christian (3 1/2) made all by himself Friday afternoon. I took the picture Saturday morning before our warmer temperatures made him melt completely away. The snowman and all the rest of the snow melted today. I am not very sorry to see it go, but the children will miss playing out in it. The fact that we don't get snow very often makes it that much more special to them and I am sure they will remember this for a long time.
