We finally got our first real snow. It went from 56° on Wednesday to 16° on Thursday and 3 inches of snow. That's the crazy weather for you here in Illinois. But we wouldn't have it any other way. Just when your sick of the dog days of summer winter blows in and when you've just about had enough of coats, boots, hats, gloves, scarves, and snow spring blooms.
I think we have the best of both worlds. We get to run around in shorts and tanks (not me of course) and enjoy baseball games and water balloon fights but we also get to enjoy what snow days bring...hot chocolate, snowballs and peaceful days together as a family.
My son who is 22 month old now (tear, where does the time go?) just stood at the window in awe of the falling snow and I was blessed enough to be there to witness such a beautiful moment through his little eyes.
