We've had quite the weather this past week...freezing cold, snow, ice, and now I'm looking outside watching the wind howl. Abe had late start for the first 3 days of the week, and school was cancelled Thrs. and Fri., giving him an early start to Christmas break. We spent quite a while outside in the snow on Thursday...Lauren mowed the snow, Abe wimped out after about 10 minutes and went inside, and Owen and I stayed out for about 1 1/2 hrs. working on his snow "sculpture," which consisted of dumping buckets of snow onto the table. Owen had a blast, and we finally had to drag him in when he said his fingers were numb. Since we don't get snow too often, you gotta take advantage of it when it's here!
