It is the end of February, and winter is edging towards its end. It has been a strange winter. Strange and mostly warm. My memory of November and December has faded somewhat, but I know we didn't have substantial snow. January was also quite warm. A few weeks ago, we finally got enough snow for the kids to play in.
And they enjoyed it. And then within a week, the temperatures soared and the kids and I ran around outside with temperatures in the 60's.
In a way, it seems surprising that spring is approaching as we didn't have much of a winter. But March is in a few days. We are looking forward to pleasant temperatures and time to play outside. I will say that in a way, winter is nice because I don't feel obligated to run the kids around much. Also, when the weather is nice, the little ones want to be outside. That is a great thing, but it means I have to make sure they are SAFE outside. I'm thankful for bigger children who can watch little children now.
