It's the first time we've had a decent amount of snow this year, possibly 3-4 inches. Even my husband had a four-hour delay for his work.
Before breakfast, the children played in the snow. They were all outside around seven o'clock.
For breakfast, I made french toast. It's become a tradition to have it when the children have a delay or school closing.
Big Sister cozied up with a book. (Do you recognize it? It's a good one from my list of Books for Middle-Grade Boys. Yes, she's a second-grade girl, but she's a bit advanced. It's delightful, adventurous, and clean. The content is totally appropriate for an 8-year-old. It's book 2 in The Mysterious Benedict Society series. I just found out you can get the four-book set -affiliate link- in hard/paperback. Definitely worth owning.)
While she did that, Brother and Little Sister began building with LEGOs. It wasn't too long before Big Sister joined them. Even the three-year-old builds real creations with the tiny bricks. Sometimes we even pull out or LEGO game called Creationary when we have game night. (It's for older kids and adults, but we skip the rules and just enjoy the challenge of the game.)
It's been an enjoyable morning.
Are you an intentional parent? I enjoyed this morning. I was intentional not to waste the morning by turning on the television, but I let the children lead as they chose how to take advantage of the snow day. Just trying to keep it simple.
