Yesterday afternoon the two littlest were playing downstairs in the playroom while I was upstairs. There is a bathroom adjacent the playroom and I could hear the water go on, off.....a minute later on, off.....a minute later on, off (you get the idea). I thought I better investigate.
This is what I found.
Me: What are you guys doing?
Sweetpea: We're pretending that it's summer.
Me: What are all the pots of water for?
Sweetpea: They're swimming pools for our ponies!
Me: Oooooh, of course!
Sweetpea: Mama, how many more days till summer?
Me: Hopefully the snow will be gone by the end of April.
Sweetpea: Oh good! Yay!
It's a good thing she is 5 and really has no concept of how long it will be until the end of April.
I left them to their fun, the water bought me 30 mins of peace and quiet! :) After all, they did have the sense to put a towel down. I was impressed!
I've heard from people that have lived here their entire lives that they have seen snow in every month of the year. A friend said it snowed the day after her wedding. Which was in.........JULY!
Hopefully I will never ever ever see that.
3 out of the 4 years we've lived here there has been a snowstorm at the end of May. Isn't that lovely?
