Snow Day

snow day 007

Most of the time, if it even bothers to snow here, it’s just a dusting. Maybe an inch. Hardly enough to even hide the grass! But we got approximately TWO inches yesterday morning, and so the children dragged their sleds out to the field and had a great time on our best hills.

Our best hills are in the same pasture as the cows, though, unfortunately. Usually, the cows don’t care and leave the children alone, but this time, they were intensely curious. And nervous. So the children came back for hot cocoa a little sooner than they wanted to, but it was fun anyway.

About Jennie Cooper

I'm the mother of eight children, the wife of a retired soldier, and a newly minted farmer. I spend my days fairly productively, home educating our children, raising large quantities of food for several families, and volunteering in our community. I read entire novels a page at a time in the comfort of my bathroom. I tell people I'm Catholic just because they find it so shocking. I think there's nothing so exciting as a thunderstorm coming in. It doesn't bother me at all that my dog barks outside my bedroom window all night. And I rather enjoy being 40. I didn't think I would, but 40 is pretty good.

      I know. On Country Ham Day, the weather was awful and school was closed, which pretty much shuts down every activity in Meade County. Except country hams, apparently. I drove into town at about 30MPH, the roads were so bad. I much prefer to stay home!

    Glad the kids had some fun! We have quite enough snow, but the temps have been in the low teens for most of the time, and windy, so I just don’t feel I can send the kids out for any length of time without some serious issues! They have been sledding and playing, though, on the days when it warms up into the 20s or even, yay! the 30s!

    The cows look like they’d like a ride too! Love your pics, all of them!
