Snow Day


 The school teacher decided that this was the perfect day
to call school closed because of snow. 
Snowed- in doesn't exactly apply, since we are home schooling,
 but a celebratory snow day could be accommodated. 
Every one was excited, dressed for outdoor play before breakfast was done cooking,
except for Gabe- who took 20 minutes to get dressed 
and then played outside for 4 minutes 
before he cried of frozen fingers,
because he would not leave his gloves on.
He was then happy to stay inside with mama the rest of the day.
 

 



Finally, all were ready to come in and have some tea, 
sit by the fire enjoying the warmth,


 Some even begged......


Once the noise came in, the woods were quiet and peaceful, but not empty.


We spied some neighbors passing by in lovely brown fur coats, 
seemingly enjoying the snowy day as much as the children.

There will likely be many more snowy days ahead this winter,
but the first big snow is the most exciting, the most celebrated. 
It seemed a good time to make the most of the moment. 

Currently it is 6 degrees out, and snowing still, 
with the promise of getting colder tomorrow.  
We will be glad to stay in and school next to the fire 
with tea in hand
and turkey on our mind.

WOW you did get snow. We are in NY and no snow yet. Predicting some for Thanksgiving night though.

Beautiful pictures. Thanks for sharing with all of us. Yesterday, here in Miss., was 78 degrees...probably will be the same today!

Oh, how beautiful! I'm looking forward to our first big snow of the year here in PA. Isn't it nice to be able to call your own "snow day":) One of the many joys of homeschooling.
