This morning we woke up to the first “snow” of the season and, as one would expect any child to react (at least until they’re ready for spring), our children all responded with squeals of delight and screams of joy. As someone who grew up in Michigan, I was wholly unimpressed, but I didn’t want to squelch the kids’ excitement. They requested to go outside and play, and why shouldn’t they? By the time they got into clothes and dredged up a coat and hat, the sun had melted most of the snow, but that didn’t stop them.

All in all, in the eyes of a kid, it was a very good morning.
