Yesterday morning my kids woke up at 6:30 and stared at their school’s website, praying for a snow day. And it paid off. By about 6:45 the school put up the announcement that school was called off for the day due to snowy weather. There were a lot of cheers. I heard them from my bed. So we spent the day baking bagels, learning to make traditional danish buns (from a Danish friend), going to the park with the sleds, playing in the snowy garden and then going out sledding for a second time on the grounds of a local castle. By the end of the day the kids were red cheeked, happy and in need of a mug of hot chocolate.
Not a bad backdrop to admire while your kids throw themselves down a snowy hill.
Chrysanthemum didn’t appreciate the snow so much. She has delicate feet.
