Always Winter. Never Christmas.

Remember how it used to be summer?

The current temperature in Sioux Falls is -7, but with the wind chill, it feels more like -24.

It is cold, it is mid-February, and it is the time of the year when there's nothing to look forward to and it's always winter and never Christmas and there's at least a solid 6 weeks left before we can ever hope for reprieve.

It is, as happens every year, officially driving me crazy.

It's harder to concentrate, it's harder to leave the house with four children, it's my least favorite season.
I am so, so, so not into winter.

I'm even a little angry about it today.

So this afternoon, I'm remembering summer.

So funny, Megan, this Narnia phrase has been running through my mind lately, too, "Always winter, never Christmas." It's been cold here, although not as cold as what you guys have. Lots of snow. Funny, though, I've been flipping through my Christmas pictures instead of fast-forwarding to summer. Beautiful children. I love the unbridled emotion that sprinklers bring out of kids.
