We have been blessed with a few days of snow last week, enough to keep us crafting for days. In our blizzardly bliss, we crafted one and a half igloos, a sled ramp, and a tunnel, along with sledding up and down the streets with neighbors.
Our city shut down for a few days, and most people were forced to stay home to work on their unfinished projects. I organized a few more closets, cleared out unloved goods for a friend's yard sale, planned out homeschool units, and generally put things back in order. We sang songs from Hannah and Liam's first theater movie, Frozen. It was a treasure to eat through the foods in our freezer and cupboards, to cut coffee filter snowflakes, read all our snow-themed books, and to stay home together for a few days.
As the rains wash away the last of our igloo, we are just now getting back into the swing of things around here. Slow and steady. It feels good to be out and about and see our friends again, though we wouldn't mind having a little more snow to accompany our family's endless song of "Do you want to build a snowman?" Yes, we surely do.
