Everybody enjoys a day off and yesterday was a day to go nowhere! We had 14 inches of snow overnight and schools were closed. Many kids went “sleigh riding” as they say in the East. I am from the Midwest where we call it “sledding.” In any case it was perfect snow for making a snowman or fort.

Snow days are Duke’s favorites–other than a trip anywhere near water–so I had to photograph him with the white stuff on his nose after tunnelling through the snow to fetch his balls. After shoveling the driveway (he was NO help, dropping his ball in front of my shovel, hoping to distract me) we took off along a stream snow shoeing. 

I love my work with children and writing to encourage languge development, but I also enjoy my breaks, taking in this beautiful place where I live.
