I am SO happy that it snowed. I L-O-V-E our new layer of white all over our world. Jake and Peder shoveled the sidewalk and the snow brought out the wonder in our kids' eyes. It is such a wonderful thing to watch.
I had my financial aid appointment today at the Minnesota School of Business. Jake had to be there too since we file our taxes jointly and that meant all 3 kids came with us too. On our way to the appointment we drove past the airport and it got me thinking about movie portrayals of a Minnesota winter. You know...people step out of the airport and there is blowing snow, it's dark and gloomy and it basically portrays a place no sane person would want to be. I said this to Jake and we started talking about how it should be portrayed: big fluffy snowflakes falling playfully down, when the sun comes out right after a snowfall, the brilliant brightness that fills the world, Christmas lights shining off the snow and kids playing. All the things that I love about winter. One of the reasons I live in Minnesota by choice: we get to experience these seasons. Yes, today was kind of like how we're portrayed in the movies, but I know that I'll get a lot of those good days out of this winter too.
