This past week has been pretty chilly here in Northern Michigan. Our winter started out very mild, with not much snow. But that has changed.
I feel a bit like Mr. Rogers now. I take off my coat when I come inside my house and promptly put on my warm sweater. I don't have any inside shoes, though. And I don't sing the song. But, maybe I will tomorrow...
Today we spent our afternoon in the backyard. Daniel is working on building a snow fort. He's calling it a quinzie and I'm not really sure how to spell it and what makes it different from a snow fort. This is what the Boy Scouts slept in last weekend...outside...in January.
He had some helpers. (I'm using that term loosely)
Or maybe I should say supervisors.
This one enjoyed the challenge of walking in the deep snow.
...but then get right back up.
Such a proud boy!
The squirrel nests are no longer hidden this time of year.
This big boy showed me his talents at making a snow angel.
As of this evening they have made progress with the quinzie.
I saw blue sky today. We don't see that much of it around here, this time of year. It was something to take in - and appreciate.
We finished up the day with a dance party. The oldest boy had his turn first and was letting the younger two have a go at it.
My middle one can really bust a move!
