this is my favorite hide and seek spot of the season.
today we took the dinos
out of their safety zone and into the snow
in the playhouse
down the slide
in the hollow log
in the sandbox
made footprints and snow angels
roamed on dinosaur island
went to a party
loved the snow
they all had a such a good time and were worn out.
“my son’s always showing me pictures of dinosaurs and asking me what their names are.
i don’t know, so i make stuff up:
that, son is a thesaurus.”

walking in the beautiful snowfall yesterday, it was clear some things never change, even after 100 years
“snow was falling, so much like stars filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine its reason for being was nothing more than prettiness.”

our class has been taking a close look at snow and ice
after reading them
the first book i ever read all by myself
‘snow’ by p.d. eastman
brought a snowball in from outside
named it ned
popped it in our freezer
check on it every now and then
take ned out for just a little bit
see if it’s still cold and in the shape of a snowball and if it’s drippy
hope that ned will be with us throughout the season
even if he goes away in the spring
we’re pretty sure he’ll be back next winter.
