We got a bit of snow this afternoon around 1:00 P.M. here in North Texas. My darling daughter kept telling me since this Tuesday about the possibility of snow because her teacher said so. I checked the weather forecast and it was clear all week and the freezing days are Thursday to Saturday. I found no chance of snow or rain whatsoever.
But when I was entering Walmart store to buy a pair of mittens for K close to one o’clock this afternoon, I saw flurries falling from the sky. I thought it won’t last long. As soon as I got home, the flurries turned into snow. So when my darling daughter arrived from school, we put on our winter coats, winter boots, and mittens then went outside and play in the snow.
You know children are naturally curious individuals. They always check on little things wherever they go, and whatever they do they will always ask questions. And we should be keen and ready to answer their inquiries. One of the things that amazes them is snow. What is snow made of? Why does it snow? We know that snow is composed of snowflakes. So K was checking the snow and saw snowflakes formation. She said to me,
“Mommy, snowflakes have different shapes right?
“Yes,” I said.
Naturally formed snowflakes differ from one another through happenstance of formation. (Wikipedia.org)
She found two and pointed at them so I can see. I won’t even see them immediately, those tiny little snowflakes on the plastic chair. 🙂
We had fun playing in the snow. K’s most favorite thing was when she found two beautiful snowflakes.
