dinos in snow.

Standard

today we took the dinos

out of their safety zone and into the snow

they went

in the playhouse

down the slide

in the hollow log

in the sandbox

climbed up

jumped down

made footprints and snow angels

roamed on dinosaur island

played tag

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.”

-craig ferguson

crisp.

Standard

last night’s walk in the park

 

“it is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam.

this crisp winter air is full of it.”

argo park, ann arbor, michigan, usa – february 2021

snow was falling.

Standard

grand circus park, detroit, michigan, usa – 1920s

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.”

snowball.

Standard

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.
