Yes, we DID get a really big snow on Tuesday into Wednesday which allowed us all to take a big old breath. Sam's swim practice on Tuesday and school for all of us plus Sam's swim meet on Wednesday were all canceled. I love the word "canceled" sometimes. I don't think I would have gotten in any runs this week if it hadn't been for this storm that gave us 8 more inches of the sparkly whiteness and a whole day without anywhere we needed to go (except to the gym for some treadmill miles).
We are pretty much buried in snow and I love it. Jackson likes it too.
And this guy?
Reed has been asking about when his next birthday will be since the summer, and all summer I told him: "Your birthday is not until it snows!" And so in November when it snowed, he yelled: "IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!" And I had to keep saying, "not yet!" And now, with plenty of snow as promised, it's Reed's 4th birthday. He's off to school with a huge smile and a tray of cupcakes for his friends. Happy birthday to my favorite little man.
"Love yourself, for who and what you are; protect your dream and develop your talent to the fullest extent. Don't lose sight of your goals. No matter what the obstacles are, don't let anything deter you from your best effort. Don't allow anyone to tell you what you can and cannot do. Be tough, be stubborn, love yourself, and find friends who believe in you." --Joan Benoit Samuelson
