6 hours and 17minutes

The official weather report today: 6 hours and 17* minutes of crazy.
Jack and I woke up to 65 degrees this morning. Knowing that it would be fleeting, I dressed us as quickly as I could and out into the yard we went. At 10 am the sunshine was so warm and bright (it made Jack's hair look so red again), and I soaked it up reading magazines and digging in the mud with Jack.
Here he is pouring some sand on his dirt pile, "so it can grow big, like a planet."

After I heard him say "I'd like to see the manager please", while playing like he was in the drive through window, we came inside, ate lunch, had a nap and woke up to this at 4:17:
It's snowing. That's where we were soaking up the sun a mere 6 hours ago. It is now 27 degrees (and falling), with a windchill of 7. Jack is already asking where his snow pants and the sled are, and wanting to know if Meghan will go sledding with him again when "there are piles of snow to fall in."

*17 would be "eleventeen" to Jack right now. He can count to 16, but he much prefers to count to 10 and then start throwing in "eleventeen" anywhere he can.

  2. That is bizarre weather! The best of both worlds for Jack! I tagged you, by the way, don't feel like you have to do it...you have probably been tagged a bunch but if your game :)

  3. It was 66 degrees this morning at 11:15 when The Bean and I went out to identify clouds and learn about weather. At 12:38 it was 38 degrees. Wicked weird.

  4. That is some crazy weather! It was warm here today. Not that warm though, and it didn't drop to crazy temps either. Sigh. Where's spring??

  10. Crazy weather! At least you were smart enough to get out while it was nice. I wish it would be nice here!!!

    HA- eleventeen! I love it!!! I almost hate correcting them when they say such cute things!
    Hannah can count pretty well but she ALWAYS skips 14 and 15 for some reason.

  17. Sooo adorable! He's so cute little Jack! We share the same strange weather here in Norway....Usually we would have 2 m of snow by now, but this year we only have a few cm, and ice ;-)

  18. This crazy weather is going on everywhere! I can't believe how much it dropped around here, either. It was 40°, just the other day, in my neck of the woods.

  19. Living in Oklahoma, I can relate to your weather. It looks like you had a good time while you could though.

    I love all of the vintage finds you come up with!

    I found you through the coaster swap at ibbe bees.

    Stay warm, it sounds like it's coming again.

  20. Oh wow what weather is unbelievable! Jack's hair is fabulous by the way!
    Gosh he and Leroy are so alike, I'm sure you have mentioned that before. What a pity they live so far from each other, I bet they'd have a ball digging together!
    Love the comment about seeing the manager, LOL!
    Oh and eleventeen is so cute! Leroy says FIVEteen for fifteen, love how they come up with cute things like that!

  21. That is crazy weather. A few weeks ago we had some warm and balmy weather also (2 or 3 days of it!) and we also made the most of it but I don't remember it snowing immediately afterward.

    Jack is so cute - love all the great stuff he says.
