Having woken to a dusting of snow, the children couldn’t wait to get wrapped up warm and to head out to play in the white stuff. J was first out, pelting with me with snowballs from left, right and centre as I desperately tried to de-ice the car. He was super excited by the arrival of the snow, though disappointed that he was unable to head out sledging as school beckoned.
Thumbs Up For Snow
E meanwhile busied herself with making snow angels, whilst laying upon her freshly washed, pale pink jacket. I must remember to buy her darker coloured clothing once she has outgrown her current clobber.
My Little Snow Angel
I too was excited to the see the snow and I couldn’t help but to be drawn to window watching, as flurries of snow fell on and off throughout the day. Contrary to Dean Martin’s ‘Let It Snow’ we had places to go, there was no fire and whilst the weather was indeed frightful, it was most certainly delightful.
I hope that we see further snowfall this winter, I’d love to spend a spontaneous snow day with the kids and to make use of the sledges which are currently hung in the garage. Despite all the excitement, fun and frivolity, there’s another aspect to this wonderful weather as blankets of crisp, crunchy, shimmering snow offer a serene sense of silence as the world seems to become pleasantly peaceful.
Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
