Winter with a Chance of Flowers

It’s the middle of February and the weather is cold and snowy. This is what it looks like right now.

But soon it will be spring and bright, cheerful flowers will be back.

Spring (and flowers) are always so welcome after a cold winter!

Snow, Sleds and Mittens

After it snowed Meggie would think about what she should do first. Would she go skating at the pond down the road, build a snowman in the yard, or go sledding on the hill by her school? First she needed to see how cold it was. If it was extra cold staying near the house would be the best choice, although Meggie didn’t pay attention to the temperature until she couldn’t feel her nose or fingers! But her Mom always made sure she had on a hat, mittens and a scarf as well as boots. This took a long time to accomplish.

Sometimes her choice depended on whether there were other kids out sledding or making snowballs. She loved sledding down the hill as fast as she could but didn’t like climbing back up pulling the sled. That was hard work.

Once the snow started to fall Meggie liked to play outdoors as much as possible. It made the winter months go by quickly, and it was lots of fun!
