My children were born in New Mexico where the seasons are Mildly Cold, Warm, Hot, and Sizzlin’. Grayson has a few vague memories of the quickly melting snow, and we had a beautiful white Christmas this past year, but, Jaye has never seen falling snow.
Recently, we were walking home in the crisp Idaho night, and a light snowfall began. Grayson immediately started running around with his tongue sticking out. But Jaye just looked up and squealed, “Bubbles!” She joined Grayson in scurrying around and swiping at the flakes, shouting, “Pop! Pop! Pop!”
I hope she finds these bubbles as magical, when it’s -11 degrees and the wind is whipping.
