Well, it happened. We got the perfect* snow day. (*Perfect would not have involved a 5:17 am wake up call from the Round Rock School District letting me know that the 2 hour delayed start was now a full day. We had a two hour delayed start. TWO. EXTRA. HOURS. TO. SLEEP. And they call us at 5:17 am??!!)
But the kids had an unbelievably wonderful time. We woke up to a winter wonderland outside, with just enough snow in all the right places to have the best time.
Most of it was spent sledding.
And having snowball fights.
The boys played outside three separate times, having to come in periodically to rest and warm up.
It wasn't long, though, before the sun was shining and by 1:00 pm most had melted away. Fortunately, our front yard and driveway is pretty shaded, so it stayed snowy and icy the longest of any house in our immediate sight.
And nothing says fun like an icy, steep driveway.
