We had our first heavy snow not too long ago...it always causes quite the panic here. People stock up on groceries, drive 2 miles an hour, and everything is cancelled (school, work, sports, life...). The adults groan and look outside at the driveway that needs to be shoveled. When Cate looked outside and discovered the snow, she said, "Mom, the snow is sprinkle-y!". Kids always notice the beautiful little things that we sometimes forget to look at. They want to experience everything they can see (except for the green peppers in their casserole). While the rest of the world is preparing for disaster, children are commenting on caterpillers, pinecones, snakes and snow that sparkles like diamonds.
