Flying back from Florida this time of year is strange because three hours in the air changes everything outside the plane window. We left sunshine, blue skies, and warm breezes, and arrived to snow covering everything! It is pretty shocking to look out the window when the plane descends below the clouds to see miles and miles of white broken up only by roads, rivers, and the brown branches of trees. The lake behind our house is about 90% frozen and the geese and ducks seem to have left temporarily for a warmer place.
"Can we do it mom? Can we? Can we?"
Well, this morning, she did get out in the snow (boy, it was COLD - maybe not even 20 degrees when she and Kyle were out there!) to accomplish some of the things on her list. Tomorrow I promised I would take her ice skating - inside, of course. I am a baby about the cold!
