Man, how the time has flown! When the last post on this blog was posted, I was turning ten and dancing around in the living room. Now, my thirteenth birthday is coming up on April 1st. Well today, February 24, it snowed in Scappoose. It coated the ground with white, dusty powder that was hard to have a snowball fight with but beautiful to look at. The huge evergreen tree that sits in front of our house was stunning, all powdered with white fluff. Early this morning we got a call from the Scappoose School District saying that there would be a two-hour delay for school. Moses, Henry, and Lincoln, and I were heartbroken that Henry and I would have to go to school (Moses is home schooled). As we were devising a plan to convince mom to let us skip school, the phone rang and there was another recording about how they had changed the school schedule and there would be no school. The first thing we did was get on our snow gear and head outside. We threw around snowballs ( which were very hard to make) and made snow angels and played with the dog in the snow for about an hour. It was fun, but there had only been about an inch of snow on the ground. soon, anywhere that the snow had been touched was green and almost all the snow was gone. After that, we went inside and warmed up with some tea and relaxed while looking out the window at the dripping world. The day was magical, and we were blessed to have one last snowday (at least I think:).
