A Very Snowy Tuesday!

With a winter storm arriving yesterday and into last night, it was a great opportunity for us to take full advantage of the fresh snow!  A group of children chose to go on a sledding field trip on CMU's campus, instead of staying inside during morning center time.  The children walked with a few teachers to the sled hill and enjoyed the sunshine and fresh air.
After realizing the snow was up to most of the children's waist and the picnic tables were buried, the children climbed onto what was showing of the tables and used the tabletops as platforms to jump off of into the snow.
Some children saw the snow hills that formed from the sidewalks being plowed further in the distance and decided to go climb those hills.  After getting to the top, the children jumped off into the fresh powder and pretended they were doing "polar bear plunges" but instead called them, "snow plunges."
Overall, we made the best of this snowy day and all children got the chance to go outside to enjoy the fresh snowfall.  Thankfully, it wasn't as cold as it has been these past few weeks!

Have a great week everyone,
Miss. Adcock
