While homeschoolers are known for not ever having snow days, such as my boys. Sometimes I let them have their time to just dream.  I took these photos back in January with our first heavy snow of the new year.  They spent about an hour just watching the snow.  I was amazed at how content they were and took photos of them as they’d either stay snuggled in bed watching or jump from window to window with anticipation of seeing the cold pieces of moisture fall from the sky onto the earth.

In finally looking these photos over, I felt the need to state how minimalism makes us yearn more for the outdoors than ever before, but also makes us see joy in the more simplistic pieces of living.

We are not created to be stuck inside for so long.  We are made to work the earth, spend time out in nature, and loving the people around us.  Now that it is April and we had some snow just last week, I am hoping that it was the last snowfall for us.  We are antsy and ready to go outside to explore and enjoy new adventures together.
