This winter has been particularly cold. Yesterday morning when we learned that schools where closed due to the snow, we though we were going to spend a lot of time playing outside. I kept checking the temperature all morning long. Later in the afternoon we bundled up, took the sled and went out. I don't thing we were out for more than 15 minutes. It was so cold that when I suggested to go back inside, the kids didn't complain. They were done playing in the snow, which is rare. But is understandable with temperatures in the single digits. I wished it hadn't been that cold. We really enjoy the snow.
