We had hoped we would get a good snowstorm before we left for the tropics. We got our wish.

Someone asked me if my kids had ever been in snow before. I think they have been...twice. The first time was really only a dusting on the ground that melted in about an hour. The second was a smaller snowstorm shortly after we arrived here at the end of January.
They were, in Michelle's words, delighted with it. We took some time to read The Story of Snow. Michelle made me promise to take this book to Africa with us "so we don't forget what snow is, Mama". Yeah, I think we can manage that. =)
Michelle recorded the event in her nature journal. Her entry reads "It's snowing today! We saw snow today. We even played in it. We had a fun time playing in the snow. But mom said she was getting cold." (Yes, I admit I like snow better from the window with a warm drink in hand!)
