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.
