Here's regular old everyday February, in photos (a lot of them, just to warn you) and words (which may or may not make sense because this post was written in about forty five separate sittings and proofreading has gone out the window and I'm running on less than optimal sleep and I think maybe a part of my brain is frozen.)
Snow, snow, cold, cold, and Owen is not a fan. He bundles up like an Eskimo to go out and then cries because his mitten hands can't hold onto anything very well.
But even I have to admit, it sure is beautiful when the sun comes out.
I don't think the photos are doing justice to the snow features Ben has created... We've got a path leading to the main igloo complete with two slides at the back entrances, and a spiraling path which leads to a smaller igloo at the center, and most recently we had a tubing track coming off the front porch and swooping around into the big fort. (After the weekend rain, I think we're in for some repairs. Or better yet, spring come on down!)
It took months, but we finally filled the marble jar!

Owen's super serious Jedi face.
So, that was February in a nutshell. Like, a really big nutshell. March has been busier -- more friend time (my big resolution, remember?), some nights away, and I've started doing some substitute teaching. That there is some good stuff which I'll have to come back to. But for now, I'm outta here. Hope your February was spectacular, and I hope your March is too. Tell me: do you think spring will really come again this year?
