I am not sure how the weather has been where you all live but here in Ohio, it was a looooooooooooong, coooooooooold, snooooooooooooowy Winter! I kid you not, we might have seen the ground without snow MAYBE one week, otherwise the ground was completely covered with several inches of snow for 3 months straight!! Our kids missed so much school that they have to make up days all the way into June!!! I do have to admit though, Daddy and the kids made some mean igloos and a rockin snowman with our last snow!!!
