Y5 - 19/365: The Snowman
All bundled up and ready to go! Ryan begged Matt yesterday to build a snowman, but when they went out to try, Matt found the snow too powdery and it wouldn't stay together very well. There was a mound in the garden Matt made with the broom, but he couldn't manage to roll any properly into snowman parts. So, when Ryan was up from his nap we all got bundled up and had another go!
It wasn't perfect but we had far more success this time around. Ryan helped me choose some good 'arms' from the apple tree and once we used some stones for the face and a carrot nose, the snowman was nearly complete.
A cheap top hat from the cupboard and Matt's Albion scarf (knitted by
his Nan) were the finishing touches and...VOILA! We have a snowman!
Ryan was very tickled that our snowman had a carrot nose and even took to counting the stones that made up the eyes and mouth.
I'm sure at some point Ryan suggested we make a snow dog as well, but I think we will have to save that for another day.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
