We awoke yesterday morning to windows caked in snow and a fresh, deep winter wonderland outside. My four-year-old threw her hands into the air and said in an exasperated tone, "but it's supposed to be SPRING!" My sentiments exactly, baby girl.
The trees with their long white stripes made me laugh when I saw them after dropping the girls off at preschool--it seems to have snowed sideways! Later in the day, on our way home, my daughters spotted with their spring-hungry eyes the bit of yellow peeping out from snow-crusted branches. Yes, it's snowing again today but we are still holding out hope!
