To say that this winter has been brutal would be a huge understatement. We have been shattering records left and right for minimum temperatures, and lowest high temperatures, and most days below freezing, and coldest January ever, etc., etc., etc. In order for the boys to have outdoor recess at school, the windchill has to be above zero. (Which is still sooo cold to be outside for 20 minutes!). I believe that in January, they had exactly two days of outdoor recess! And February, I believe they had three. That means that all the other days, at 11:30, the windchill was in the negative! It also means that we have all been stuck inside for months. So, after months of it not getting above freezing, the 19th of February, it finally did. I think it got to 38 degrees, which probably meant the wind chill was around 28, so of course we headed outside to enjoy the heat wave!
Snow ball fight!
