Snow Day!












Today was supposed to be our first day back to school from Christmas break, BUT we got over 6 inches of snow yesterday! Maybe not such a big deal to some people, but here in Arkansas we don't get to see too much of the white stuff so it is a pretty big deal around here. This is the most snow that we have had in the 7 years we have been here. It snowed all day yesterday and a little bit this morning. Christian woke me up saying, "Mommy it's morning and there is still snow on the ground. Can I go outside?" The town basically shut down and even Art got a snow day because his plant was shut down. So after breakfast and morning chores I bundled them up and out they went to throw snowballs, try to build a snowman and sled down the front hill. Luckily we have warm coats and hats for everyone, although we were short on gloves and a few of the children had to wear warm socks on their hands. We did get some school work done after that and after lunch they were back outside again. A little more work in the afternoon while they were warming up and back outside again. They had a great time and there is no telling when it will happen again, although there is still quite a bit of snow on the ground and it is supposed to stay pretty cold this week. I will admit that I have been pretty spoiled. It is hard work getting them all dressed to go out and then getting them undressed when they come in again and doing it over and over again! The boys are already talking about a snowball fight right after breakfast tomorrow!
