Clean up took a little longer than usual
The kids have been out sledding and playing and have a fantastic time enjoying the many activities that snow provides. Roman always snow blows to the swing set because our swing set gets no rest. Evan did a full flip (by accident) off of a swing yesterday and landed face down in the snow, but 20 inches of fluffy snow does a lot of cushioning and he wasn't hurt at all. Thank goodness. It was actually pretty impressive. Imagine a gymnast dismounting from the parallel bars, but belly flopping instead of landing on their feet.
Today is back to school despite the terrible weather, but I don't blame the districts for being open. With vacation coming next week we really need to get some days in! I'm hopeful that the snow will stay for a while so we can get lots of sledding and playing in before it's gone. We're planning on taking the boys skiing for the first time next week so all of this new snow is perfect timing. I am curious to see how they'll like it, but it's something that Roman's family has done his whole life and he really wants to kids to love it too. Yay for winter fun.
