We had a dusting of snow yesterday when we woke up. It was enough to close schools. I went in to wake Lucas and he asked me not to open his curtains. He finally looked outside. I told him I needed to show him something.
L: “Snow? Can I play in it?”
Me: “If there’s snow on the ground when we get home, you can play in it.”
My husband was taking him to daycare so I had a somewhat chance of getting to work at a reasonable time. Our neighborhood was dicey, but the rest of the roads were fine. Of course, the sun came out, the temperatures rose and the snow melted away.
(That photo was taken a year and two days ago.)
We cannot get a decent snow this year! Yesterday was the first day schools had closed this winter, and normally by now we’ve had two or three snow days. My poor boy just wants to play in the snow.
The forecast is strong for snow on Monday. And I’ve made the executive decision to take the day off (or at least a half day) if we get something decent.
The boy deserves snow.
Are you in a snowy area? Are you sick of it yet? What would you do with a snow day?
