Mud Angels


A couple of weeks ago, we had a spring thaw. Most of the snow in the yard melted and the children we excited to find the sand and the mud again!  Although, there was a bit of grieving happening for the snow as well. Change is always hard, and with the change of the seasons comes a change in play. When the snow is gone, we can no longer sled down the hill...

We can no longer jump off the snowbanks........

We can no longer make snowmen, or push the snow around.....


We can no longer paint the snow.....


And, when we can no longer make snow angels, well.... sand or mud angels will just have to do!

Along with the disappearance of the snow, comes the marvelous spring mud! So, our grief does not last long as we gear up for running, dashing, sliding, and jumping through the puddles!


And... around here in Upper Michigan... the first "spring thaw" is usually just a tease anyway as we usually find ourselves with a few more winter storms before the snow is really truly gone for the year!
How is the weather in your area? How are your children playing outside??? I'd love to hear from you!
