Below Zero

Today, Mom, Austin, and I went out into the freezing land of our front yard. It felt like below zero when it was really20 degrees. First, mom had me put on a white shirt and pants, next some jeans and a pair of boots, and after a third layer of a coat, scarf, mittens, and a hat. I stepped outside thinking mom why do I have to wear this? I mean it’s not that cold. But believe me, it was freezing cold. First mom took some pictures (the family favorite) of us playing in the snow. Then we walked down to Jordan’s house and sure enough she was outside. We greeted her nicely and practiced hitting trees with snowballs, but then it all changed. We gave each other a unfriendly look and got our snowballs ready. And, we were off throwing, throwing snowballs and not know where there were going. Battling for everything, darting from tree to tree. I stopped and I heard mom’s voice cry, “Time to go home and thaw out.” What felt like 2 seconds was really 10 minutes. I walked down the sidewalk and vanished into the icy mist.

  1. Cool! It really was cold yesterday. Did you know its gonna snow on Wednesday? Funny thing is I saw Jordan outside too and I played with her for like 20 mins. I'm sad I didn't get to see you.
