So it's the 29th of October...and we have several inches of snow on the ground!! It's not the most horrible thing in the world, just a new experience for me. It was amazing to watch it come down, to tell the truth. The snow started not long after 8 in the morning and continued with a vengeance until sometime after 5pm! The flakes were like more like chunks, globs even.
However, I was the "not so prepared" mom on the block. I looked up and down, side to side for the better part of an hour and could not find Reese or Logan's snow boots. I had every ones snow suit's but only could find Logan's hat and cloves. I finally decided that after lunch we'd just put on two pair of socks, tennis shoes and some socks on the hands too. Okay great, we have a plan!! And then about that time, the power went out. Well we cant very well go outside where it's cold enough to snow and then come inside to a cold house. Poor Logan had to have me explain to him "one more time" like 7 times. He was crushed.
But what's new, right? It starts snowing in October, and I'm not prepared. But we made due with puzzles, a game of match, some Polly Pockets, and finally a late nap all together in my bed to stay warm. The power finally came back on. And by then Jeremy came home and had taken all 4 kids to his parents. So, I enjoyed a nice bath with some bath salts...okay, okay, I used some of the kids bubble bath too! It was nice. So, here's to snow days. Today was fun, but I'm hoping that the next one is a good month or more away and I plan on being more prepared.
