It’s been a very “snowy” week! Yesterday we cycled in the snow and today was the first time the girls ever built a
snowman snowgirl. How pretty is she!
First thing this morning I checked the weather on my iPhone – I really shouldn’t do this in winter, it’s even harder to drag myself out of bed! At least they made it look all pretty. Looked out the window and it was snowing, but not covering the ground yet. Thankfully, no cycling today – my daughter had the day off school as they were doing teacher training.
Within about half an hour of consistent snow, this is what the view was like:
About 10am, the snow stopped and the girls went out to play in it! For a novice, Isabella picked up rolling snowballs quite quickly.
She even managed to manoeuvre it onto the sled by herself!
Then I helped Sophia add her snowballs and we grabbed some accessories:
And there you have it! She’s still happily sitting out there in the garden this afternoon, even though most of the snow has melted around her. We’ve also been listening to big clumps of snow fall off the roof as they melt! We’re hoping for more snow on the weekend so papa gets to go and play in it too – but not next week when we have to cycle to school again.
I’ve had a lot of trouble with autocorrect on this post – it doesn’t like “snowgirl”, keeps trying to change it to “showgirl”!
Have you ever made a snowman? How old were you when you made your first one? I didn’t make my first snowman until I was about 20!
