We are currently on our fifth snow day of the year. Our school has two days built in. Let me do the math for you...that means we have 3 days to make up at the end of the year. Currently, that puts us at May 28. I am okay until we get to June. Once we get to June, this teaching momma gets crabby.
And despite being stuck in the house for 2 days straight, I am enjoying these snow days. They are really the first 2 days that have been truly SNOW days.
We had a couple days just after the New Year that didn't really amount to much. We ended up with a rain day last week...forecasters didn't quite have that storm timed out quite right.
But this week? We have had so much fun in the snow!
We went sledding at the hill behind the barn. The kids could have spent the entire day there...they loved it!
I finally had to make them get in the car to warm up...at which point the Little Miss realized just how cold she was!
Even the cows were cold!
The husband went out on the tractor (with no cab) to push the snow from the driveway. About 10 minutes into it, the winds picked up, it started snowing again, and at one point it looked like a blizzard. Hello, frozen husband!
(Doesn't he have cute lips?)
We had a little extreme backwards tractor driving...which didn't end well. If you look carefully, you can see two doggies frolicking in the snow. They just love to run in the snow, sticking their snouts down into it, chasing and wrestling each other.
Some of the smaller drifts made the perfect forts for snowball fights.
This little guy loves a good snowball fight!
Once the tractor is off and the snowball fights are over, I love how quiet and peaceful it is with a blanket of snow on the ground.
But then the kids start arguing or parachuting from the couch, and I realize...
I'm ready for spring.
