We finally have snow, so we slowed way down today to enjoy it! I tell you what, the boys were excited this morning about the snow as they are about Christmas morning!
Jacob woke me up excitedly (note to self: figure out why alarm clock is malfunctioning and fix it already!), letting me know I wasn't going to believe how much snow was outside! His perceptions of how that would change our day-to-day lives was amusing to me:
"There's so much snow, mommy! Now we won't be able to play on the swingset, we won't see out the van windows anymore, and no more animal chores!"
Oh, Jacob! I quickly clarified that he can still play on the swingset, that we'll brush off the van windows, and that the animals have to have food and water whether there is snow out or not!
Needless to say, the boys were out sledding by 9 a.m.! Even though we had to get into town to get a new driver's license for me (mine has gone missing), I let them play out for a few hours. A quick trip to town, deliver some eggs, have a very late lunch, and now we're off to do farm chores and try and squeeze in an hour of school before Mark gets home!
