The first snow arrived yesterday. We awoke to squeals of excitement from our littlest, who had seen the thin white blanket across the yard before anyone else had even opened their eyes. Flurries continued all day. By dusk the snow began to fall steadily. It was the soft, silent kind that seems to hush the world around you.
The dark comes swiftly these days. By the time the kids had gotten on their millions of layers, found lost mittens, and been stuffed into snow gear, the day had turned to night. How magical to have your first romp in the snow be at twilight.
