"January brings the snow, makes our feet and fingers glow."

PLACE: The front door
SUBJECT: StellaDella's snow-covered pants and red boots
We had a snow day today. Monkeyboy was up at 5:00am this morning raring to go outside and play in the snow. It wasn't his day, but he volunteered to take the dog out, just so he could get out in the snow early. StellaDella and DramaQueen went out mid-morning. They didn't stay out long - it was quite cold!
I have to learn to stop freaking out about the footprints and melting snow on the living room floor. The floor is just a thing. The water can be wiped up and it really doesn't do any damage to the laminate. A day off of school because of the snow is such a big deal when you are young. I remember my own snow days, and they don't include my mother getting upset about the snow tracked in the house. I want my children to have good memories of days like today as well.
