We had another crazy ice/snow storm again this week. They were saying it was going to be worse than a couple of weeks ago so we were a little nervous. Fortunately for us, it was not worse! When Reese got off the bus Monday the bus driver told us that school had been cancelled for Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday was just a rainy day and Lance was even brave enough to go in to work. This time he packed a change of clothes just in case he got stuck at work. Because the news had been asking people to stay home, his drive home wasn’t too bad that evening.
Wednesday we woke up to just a bit of sleet and ice piled up around the deck and bushes but it continued to sleet most of the day. There was a lull mid day and we went out to check it out. The ice covered everything so we pulled out the sleds. The kids were flying down the driveway.
It was so much fun. Everyone was giggling and laughing. When we first went outside the kids just had their warm hats on. I was so nervous seeing them go down the hills and asked them to put their helmets on. There was a lot of fighting about it. (We saw a news story about several people in the hospital Wednesday night due to head injuries from sledding so finally they understood what I was asking them to do and didn’t fight it Thursday.)
Hayes, once again, loved every minute of it. He enjoyed sledding with me and by himself.
Sam was a dare devil on this sled. He would just dive on to it and fly down the hill. He probably had the most fun out of everyone. I was so glad he got to enjoy it this time.
Reese had a lot of fun until she went right through a puddle of slush and it splashed all over her face. That was her last run for the day. It was so funny but she was not happy! And she was so mad at Lance for taking a picture of her slush covered face.
Wednesday night in to Thursday morning it actually snowed. We woke up to a “Winter Wonderland” as Reese called it. It really was so pretty. Lance took the kids out in it again and they had a lot of fun once again.
He even made a snow man for them.
I have to say, it has been beautiful and fun BUT I am soooo ready for spring!
