This October has been way too cold already. We got our first snow at the beginning of the month and our second snowstorm this week and it doesn't end there. We are supposed to get another snowstorm next week. I was relieved and happy that I was on the ball about making sure that everyone had the clothes they needed for this coming ski season - especially Madeline. After Abby got home from school she was so excited to go and play in the snow. She kindly waited until Madeline got up from her nap and then went out back to play with her. Madeline was so excited to wear her new boots and snow clothes. All of my kids are really good with Madeline, but there is something really special about the relationship that Abby and Madeline have together. I love that Abby has the patience and the imagination to play with a 3-year old. It truly warms my heart. They threw snowballs, built a very tiny snowman, and had races in the snow. Abby was cute and ran on her knees so it would be fair. Those two are quite a pair. I love watching Madeline play. She reminds me that everything in life can be so much fun. The smallest things like playing in the snow are exciting to her and that is pretty great!
