    Winter Fun

    Laura feels like a mummy wrapped up from head to toe.  She's got a puffy coat, puffy snowpants, puffy mittens, and a puffy hat (topped with a not-so-puffy pom pom).  Her boots, while definitely NOT puffy, are bright and pink and perfect for stomping in the snow.

    And snow there is.  It's the type of morning when you would just know that school was canceled.  But this, being the Island, is a place where school never happens unless you want it to.  And after a long steady snow fall, a morning with bright snow shine and fresh clean snow is exactly the sort of day when you wouldn't want to have to be inside at school!

    Laura runs out and immediately slides down a hill, hollaring as she does.  Who needs a sled when you can slide down on your tummy like a penguin?  At the bottom, she rolls over onto her back and makes a snow angel, jumps up, moves over a bit and does it again.

    Looks out wih wonder tinking "An where's the snow gone? Is there some Grinch out there stealing it just when I feel like starting a snowball fight with Laura??? Listening intently I hear the sound of many hooves and some words echoing around in the distances as \i stand out here with my white furlined jacket on. Wonder what that might be.

    It seems like a terrible

    It seems like a terrible waste to have all of this fresh snow to myself.  Where is everyone?!

    "Hellllllllllllllllllllllllllooooooo!  Is there someone who wants to play in the snow?"

    Realizing it is a bit whiney to complain like this but pouting a bit that she can't find a play partner.

    "Jo!  Come on out!!"

    Splat! as a humungous ball of show flys through the air from Jo's glove just landing on Laura's nosey! "Oh Hi, gotcha ain't I Laura" I say. "Why there's only the two of us out here. Why do you think that is?".

    "Hey!  No fair!  I wasn't

    "Hey!  No fair!  I wasn't looking!" Laura complains, but she breaks into a big smile.  To Jo's question, she shrugs, "Maybe the other kids are taking trips and visiting their grandparents or something?  Or maybe they have to visit their other parent?"

    She packs together some snow, "Want to help me make a snowman?"

    Laura starts rolling snow to make a body.

    "Jo, why don't you roll one too?  We'll need at least three balls into order to make a snowman."

    After rolling for a while, she realizes that the thing is going to be too big to lift. "This will be the bottom part.  We need a small one to stack on top.  Big enough that we can put a head on top but not too big for us to lift up!"

    "OK, well, if that's the head

    "OK, well, if that's the head part then we need a middle part too!"

    She rolls another ball about the right size, but it's too big for her to lift.

    "Jo, help me lift this and put it on the bottom part.  And then we can put the head on!"

    Standing there, I bend gently at the knees  to lift the middle section before carefully aligning it with the bottom part, saying "That's that bit done", can just smoothe the joins slightly with the side of a blade before we tackle its head?

    "Yep!  Wet snow works the best for glue!"

    She packs mittenfulls of snow into the cracks so the bottom and the middle look good.  And then she picks up the head and puts it on top.

    "Now, he needs some arms and a face!"

    "OK!"

    "OK!"

    Laura looks around in the snow by an oak tree and unearths two acorns.  She sticks them in the head.  "And now he has eyes!  Hello Mr Snowman!"

    "Hmmm....we need to make him a mouth so he can talk too!"

    "Hello Mr. Snowman?  How are you today?"

    Laura turns to Jo, "He says he is very happy with his new body, but he's a little cold!"  She unwraps her scarf and wraps it around the Snowman's neck, "How's that?  I think you look very handsome, Mr. Snowman!"

    "Hey Jo?  I'm getting cold

    "Hey Jo?  I'm getting cold now so I think I'm going to go in.  Thank you for playing with me today!"

    Laura gives her friend a hug and then admires their snow man.   He's a little lopsided, but she feels the thrill of an accomplishment and the joy that comes from doing something together.  The weather is colder and it's starting to get dark, but she feels all warm inside from a lovely afternoon.
