Although the snow and ice makes travel more difficult and the walk to daily Mass almost mission impossible it is beautiful to see everything covered with a clean white blanket.
It is also fun to see what the children will do with the snow. Several weeks ago Alina and Kostin set to work on a huge snowman. Even with team work the upper two sections of their man did not seem to want to hold together and after much work there was a collapse. Alina then took to making miniature snowmen and Kostin settled on a medium size.
Looking at the pictures there is a wonderful appreciation for the joy children find in the simple gifts Our Lord gives us.
