It's been almost a week now since the last day we could go outside and not freeze our behinds off. This week has been lots of snow and ice and inside recess days. Last Saturday, Everdeen and I ventured outside for a few moments before the cold wind started up again and blew in another winter storm. The sun was divine on our pasty winter skin and we practiced wearing-or rather eating- sun glasses for when the sun really does shine. Winter is being mean and holding out longer than it should. We are ready for warm days and shout it from the tops of our lungs every day! Please Spring, your season is almost up before it has even begun. We would love to spend a few moments with no socks on feeling the newly green grass tickle our toes.
