This week was tough.
It's not that anything really went wrong but in general time slipped through our fingers too fast, little things frustrated us easily and our week's full schedule suffocated our down time. By Friday we were all exhausted.
So when the snow gently begin to fall mid-week it was a much needed reprieve. The first snow fall is a big deal to our boys. They have been asking since August when it was going to snow. They love snowy days filled with sledding, snowboarding, ice skating, snowmen and/or snowball fights.
It was a lovely moment. I stopped what I was trying to get done and joined my boys outside. I think for the first time all week I exhaled deeply.
