Snow Day

We have been waiting for a day like today. Not too cold, not too warm, and with snow on the ground. All week I have checked the weather hoping we could get Milo out in the snow and on a sled. After breakfast, we piled on the winter gear and headed out the door to collect eggs. We made the trip up the hill with Milo being pulled in the sled. He thought it was the best thing ever. We took a spin in the back pasture as Papa collected eggs. The birds stay in the hen house at night, but still get out during the day. They don’t venture too far from the house. The straw path helps them navigate to the corn crib. No one really likes having cold feet.


After the eggs were collected we took some time to talk with Maple. She is in love with Milo and Eric. As Eric pulled Milo up and down the small hill, she followed them back and forth.


We showed Milo how to make snow angles, which Milo found confusing. We kept asking him if he wanted to lie down and make a snow angel. He kept shaking his head and saying no. Then it was time to head back home for a nap.


Enjoy the snow!
