We are all feeling confined in this foot and a half snow. I needed a break. I packed the littles a lunch and told them to put on some warm clothes and I sent them off (very excitedly) way out yonder to our enclosed front porch. Many kisses were exchanged and I wished them good luck out there on the prairie. They left feeling proud and confident, especially since they had their new tent that their Gram had gifted them. I had a quiet lunch with my husband - it was bliss.
