Last Wednesday (October 28), we had our first snow! It started out as rain, but transitioned into small, light flakes. It snowed all afternoon and into the evening.
Helen loved it. She went out "snowing" (as she later termed playing out in the snow) with the kids. She asked to sled - not sure how she remembers that snow and sleds go together!
I let her play until her toes got too cold. We're going to have to buy her some warmer snow boots!
Of course the next day the snow was gone. I can't wait until it's here to stay! If it's going to be cold and brown (which is how the first half of November usually is in northern Minnesota), I'd rather just have snow! But I am thankful for these last few days of nice weather.
