Part 2 of this neighborhood craft project involved some major snow moving. Ben and Jack were total troopers and definitely moved a lot of snow in preparation for this craft project. The lump of snow that we slowly accumulted was many things in the half hour the three of us worked away at it. A mountain, a cone, a cylinder, and of course Jack prayed it would magically turn into a train. I think the boys were pretty thankful when Katie our neighbor and Mom of Peyton and Ethan arrived to help with the snow!
Between the two moms we moved some major snow! I am talking a good hour and a half of shoveling. Coats and hats were shed. We were sweating it out, neighbors drove by and slowed as they passed us wondering what the hecka we were up to. Slowly what started out as a big lump of snow began to take shape and turned into a super awesome snow fort complete with two rooms. The energy between us changed and we became SUPER MOMS.
This isn't something that happens everyday of course but once in a while you do something so cool for your kids that you are elevated to the peak of SUPER MOMNESS and we achieved it on this day. We were great, plans have been made to expand the fort of course. We are just waiting for more snow so we can add furniture and of course more rooms.
You can see the excitement (relief) on our faces as part 2 of this super winter craft day is completed. Bet you can guess what is next!
