indoor snow play


when we had leftover snow from a batch of snow ice cream (“recipe” follows), i almost tossed it back outside.  then i saw eliza playing with playmobil and asked if she wanted snow to play in.  we do this at preschool every day now, so why not home?

i was surprised at preschool and now at home how long the snow lasts.

it really is moments like these that bring balance to my life.  what this means is that there is as much junk as there is this goodness. humiliating and shameful, confusing and tread-stopping.  i’m working on setting a better example for my children in responding to the junk of this life.   onward, we go.
