I can hang onto an idea for a long time before I find a time/place (and motivation!) to put it into action. Anyone else like that?
Anyway, quite a while ago Angela posted these great photos of the tunnels her kiddos had made. I loved the idea and it looked like so much fun. But until today I had never had the right pile of snow (or motivation!) to make it happen.
Today we dug a tunnel! A BIG tunnel. Okay, not that big because Chris couldn't fit in it but I could squeeze through and the girls loved it. Sam got to help me dig it out, Avery was napping. I cannot even describe in words her excitement and sheer delight when she was on one side of the tunnel with me on the other and we broke through the snow and could see each other. It was an AWESOME moment.
Once Chris got home the temperatures had dropped quite a bit so we didn't stay out too long, so I didn't get that many pictures but here are a few.
So, I got motivated. And it was a blast.
The Nitty Gritty!
Did you see the February Challenge that I posted? Probably not. It's okay, I am awful at advertising this silly "meme" that I try to do on here (I think I can call it a meme although I am not technically sure of the definition). But I am hoping that there might be someone out there that can help me with that! I am wondering if there is someone that might be able to "help me" create a button for the monthly challenges. I want something very visible that will make it easy for people to see the challenge, find the original post in order to comment and participate and jump in at any point of the month even though I don't mention it everyday (most days!). Anyone willing to help me?
