After a few “pretty” pictures, the kids needed a break. They asked if they could design the next shot. Thinking they would do the normal cross eyed, tongues out picture, I was surprised when they came up with this idea almost immediately.
While we were in Colorado, the weather changed a lot. We needed sweaters when we got there.Â Then it got hot and we did not have enough t-shirts. Before we left, it snowed! Adrian and I went outside and made a snowman just by ourselves. This is Adrian’s story about the first snowman he built.
It was snowing at Colorado before we came back. Momma did not pack snow boots so I had to wear my shoes. Momma made me wear store bags (plastic bags) over my socks and under my shoes. They kept me warm and dry.
We rolled the snow into big balls. Then we put another one on top of the big ball. It has to be littler than that big ball. Then we made the last one and put it on the medium sized one. It has to be littler than that one. We found some rocks. We put its mouth with the rocks and the eyes with the rocks. For his hands and arms there were sticks. We used a bouncy thing for your shoe (a spring, not sure where he came up with that definition) for his hat.
Momma thought my snowman would last one day because he falling (melting) already. He lasted three days (until we left).Â Daddy took off his head before we started to go home to make sure the rocks got back where they belonged. Then we left Colorado.
I had fun making my snowman.Â I want to make more than one, three! this year.
While in Colorado, we saw many things we do not see in Elkhart. One day while playing outside with Adrian, I heard some birds.Â We looked up and there was a huge flock of birds! I have seen geese migrating, but I do not remember seeing a huge row like this before. I am not sure what kind of birds these are, I assume some sort of crane.
Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?
You can imagine both of our surprise when he caught me on the first try 🙂
