Snow Day #8

More snow and freezing rain. We got 3 inches of snow yesterday and then it turned to freezing rain. So no school today. 

As this long winter has dragged on, I've had to buy Nathan a new coat because the old one literally ripped apart he was wearing it so much in all his snow play. I also had to buy the kids new SNOW GLOVES. They've been using them so much, they were ripped to shreds. Usually, those gloves last years and then I'm sad they didn't get used much and have to give them away when they're too small. Not this year! Also, I think they've worn snow boots to school every day (that they've had school) for 2 months. Again, usually those boots are pristine since they wear them 2 days a year. Nathan boots are falling apart. 

We've mostly forgotten what grass feels like too. Snow on the ground since December 6th! The kids like to joke that we are the Ingalls family in "The Long Winter." Well, once we start only eating brown bread and twisting hay for warmth, we can discuss that.

Just needed to throw up a picture of the kids running across the snow mountains in the church parking lot.

Jeremy and I went to Seattle last week and I took some pretty pictures of the drive. 

We went the Snoqualmie Falls way and made a quick stop by the falls. It was 45 degrees so I thought it would feel warm compared to the 10 degrees it was at home. Yet it somehow still felt really cold? 


Elizabeth has been begging me for bangs for a while. They will take a bit more maintenance, but hopefully her hair is straight enough they will lie flat and not be too much to work with. Here she is with her new bangs.
