Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

March 23, 2020…The start of spring break for the girls. Yes, we are on a stay at home order, but we can still go outside and enjoy the nice weather, practicing social distancing of course.

Oh wait, we awoke to snow. Cold temperatures and snow on the ground. Happy spring!

We still ventured outside to go for a walk. Our goal was to visit the bird feeder Izzie’s class made a few months ago! We were scavenger hunters, bird hunters, singers, and mathematicians, all on an hour walk. However, we never did find that elusive cardinal. Try as we might, we were not able to capture its picture.

As we headed for home, the sun began to peek out from behind the clouds. The girls were now in a hurry so they could play outside before all of the snow melted.

Once home, they quickly got themselves dressed in snow gear…all by themselves for the first time ever! Usually, it’s mom help me with this, mom help me with that. Today, not a single ask for help.

They were not out long, but they had fun and creatively built a sledding snowman. When finished, I was told to come and take a picture, which I gladly did. It was a cute snowman! Extremely wet, they finally made it back inside, when I finally was asked for help.

The snow was melted by the time we went for a second walk in the afternoon, but the snowman still stood.

  1. Snow for Spring break sounds about right. It didn’t stop your hunters, singers, mathematicians, and sculptors though. Independence and self reliance. What a victory for you. I can’t wait to see what adventures today brings.
