Obligitory snow post
I wish I could fight the urge to post about our snow 'storm' here in NC, but.. I can't. Growing up in RI snow was a regular occurrence in the winter and it was usually welcomed. Now that we've moved to the Carolina's we don't really want the snow.. snow days aren't the same for parents as they are for kids! Most of the time, anyway.
Since snow isn't a regular thing down here, they don't have tons of plows running all night and day. So the roads are seriously not good to drive on. I'm sure that people who are used to driving in it would be fine, but why take the chance if you don't have to. Unfortunately, the hubby started his new position today so calling out wasn't an option.
All three kids were super excited to get out and play. The 5 and 6 year old lasted about an hour and the 10 year old stuck it out for 2 hours before asking to play IN side at a friends house. They tried to make a snowman, but said the snow was too 'fluffy'. I'm sure it'll be better tomorrow as we are supposed to get more snow and ice. Now the little ones are enjoying their hot cocoa.. as all children should after playing out in the snow. It's a requirement!!
