It's fun because the parents don't want to be there

The kids and Poly have been enjoying the snow. Poly has moved from “I think I like this snow stuff” to full fledged exuburance. This is the only picture I have of her from yesterday where she isn’t just a blur.

The boys liked it so much that they went outside after school, without having to be shoved out the door.

Charles went out again this morning with Alice to enjoy the sunshine with the snow (Corwin is off on a Cub Scout adventure). We had to send Alice in after a short while because she decided to take her mittens off and we thought finger frostbite wasn’t the kind of fun adventure we wanted this morning. Charles played outside for a good while, even asking about Corwin when he was armed with a snowball.

I let Poly out with them and she discovered ice. It rained a couple of inches Thursday and Friday and the end of the dead end street flooded as usual. This morning it was iced over and Poly ventured out on to it. It turns out that her doggie pads don’t grip it any better than people shoes. It was fun to watch her do the doggie acceleration move (spread back legs, digging in with close together front legs) but not actually move.

Poly looks like she needs a coat!

Charles kept throwing snow on Poly, but it didn’t seem to bother her any more than grass clippings.

As for the coat, Mom neglected to write a post about why Poly got shorn.
