Well, snowpalooza is done and over with. Thank goodness! It was not fun but we all survived so I suppose that's good! Here are a few pics of what it was like here near the end of last week.
Princess Bear (PB) had a blast playing in the snow. She literally just throws herself around, dives, slides and builds. We wound up with mounds of snow that were almost 4 feet high on each side of our driveway and she was jumping and sliding off of those- the child has no concept of personal safety but is always about all out fun! Her school district has a new superintendent and school was cancelled from Tuesday through Friday. I must confess that Tuesday was a stretch because it hadn't even started snowing until mid morning time frame but ok. Friday was cold but they should have been back in school but what can you do. The new superintendent is not a Midwesterner and evidently not used to snow storms. She was concerned about bus riders because the weather was so cold and most sidewalks weren't cleared. Um, got news for you- after a storm like this sidewalks don't get cleared! The plows have come through and laid an extra several feet of snow on the sidewalks and that stuff isn't moving until it warms up- a lot! The time off did give me a lot of time to do a lot of one on one education time with PB. For the most part she was a pretty good sport about it and we're making headway so I'm happy.
So that was the story here. I'm going to go work in PB's closet some more- fun stuff! Hope y'all are staying warm!
