I followed the kids out to the bus again this morning. Camera in hand.
I wanted to capture Dalton, on his way to school, as Teddy Roosevelt.
The assignment, due today, was to do a biography. Dalton chose Teddy Roosevelt.
And the second part of that assignment? Was to dress the part of the subject.
The resemblance is positively uncanny.
Honestly, this is about the best it gets when you tell your mom at 7:15 on the morning it is due, that dressing the part is, indeed, part of the assignment.
But, even more intriguing than my son’s resemblance to TR (and the fact that he looks so cute in a tie), was the beauty surrounding us this morning.
We got quite a dusting of snow last night.
And even though I’ve seen my fill of this fluffy white stuff in the last 4 months, somehow it still takes my breath away.
After a few weeks of warmer weather, we had assumed that all the snow was gone for the season.
So this was a pleasant, and most beautiful, surprise.
Especially since it didn’t require snowblowing. Like some other snow I once knew.
And so, after enjoying the view for about 5 minutes, Seamus and I decided to hightail it inside.
Where it’s not quite as lovely, but oh so much more toasty.
My calendar says that winter is gone and spring is here.
So, welcome spring. And the snow that came with you.
Very handsome! The snow looks beautiful some times I think nature forgets to look at the calendar 🙂

How beautiful that you can still find the beauty in it. My first baby was born on the first day of spring…and I'm ready for SPRING…daffodils, green grass, the sound of children playing at the park across the street…Bring. It. On. No more snow! 🙂

I love your positivity! 🙂
The snow that arrived here yesterday, on the 2nd day of Spring, was not welcomed (by myself) with the open arm welcome yours got!!
haha i know how you feel! Today its going to be 80 out! And then some how tmw were dropping to 40 then to 20 then SNOW for the weekend! Ugg, old man winter is showing his face again! lol
What a handsome guy! Teddy would be proud. 🙂
Being a Southern girl myself, I totally get the fascination with snow. Not neccesarily the debilitating kind, but a pretty couple of inches is perfect. However, I'd been craving flowers and warm sunshine for awhile, so I'm reveling in it all right now.
Before you know it, though, you'll be seeing flowers everywhere. 🙂
Your photos are stunning! What a blessing for your children to have one day!! BTW my husband is now stalking your blog for gawsh part 4!!! heehee
He looks so cute!!!
Definitely am lovin' the tie!
We are getting a boat load of snow as I type….
Come on Spring…get a move on!
Yeah – we've got the S-word in our forecast for the next 36 hours or so – but not too cold anyway!
Love the pics – it is beautiful there!
hugs – aus and co.

He's a boy! My fifth-grader's biography was on Albert Einstein, and he told me so late that he needed to dress up, that I had to pay 2-day shipping charges just to get the Einstein wig here in time! But he looked cute and got an A, so I guess it worked out!
How fun that they get to dress up to give their reports – I never got to do that when I was young!
All the best,
Nicole A., now in LA
(where it's been sunny and 75 for two weeks now!)
