Living in the Pacific Northwest challenges me every day.
Actually, it wasn’t that challenging until I had children, because I never had to go outside unless I wanted to, now I have to go outside because they want to go outside. It was just last night my husband said,
“Sometimes it’s not about what I want to do!”
He’s exactly right, it’s about them and raising up to strong and healthy and happy children.
So we do things like, build snowmen in the
snow I mean rain.
There was snow everywhere…
And that is a big huge stinkin But
It was Pouring down rain!
So we were outside shoveling snow into a snowman while it was raining. The kids had fun and we were all soaked to the bone. My coat absorbed most of it, but man it was so wet. The snow was a soupy slushy melting fun that the kids adored. And while they were having fun, we shoveled the driveway. (Thank you Tom Sawyer) Until they were cold too. Ooops, we forgot to put on our gloves!
They were happy though!
