Snow Day



Working from home with 4 excited kids in the house is challenging. But how often do we get snow days in mild Eugene?

It was the perfect snow day. Big, fluffy flakes of sticky snow fell on and off all morning. The world was white and pretty. Then a small horde of children built a fort and had a terrific snowball fight.

They came in cold, with sopping wet gloves and bottoms. I stripped them off, they warmed up, and moved onto art projects, workbooks and Minecraft. The sun came out and melted all the snow away.

Work today was something of a relief. The ordinariness of a quiet office. Concentrating amidst laughter and negotiation of kiddos, getting them dressed for the cold and staying occupied throughout the day was a nice change, though.
