I am sitting in my home office working and something suddenly struck me. Schools are closed, the skies are blue and the there are piles and piles of snow outside. And amazingly, there is not a single child outside playing in the snow. What happened to having fun outsider in the fresh air? Have we given up on that pastime?
I remember when we were kids and it snowed you had to restrain us from running outside without our jackets. We would build a snowman, go sledding, have a snowball fight. We would be soaking wet and run inside to eat something before running back outside lest we missed any of the fun.
There isnít a soul outside playing. I feel like I should be running from door to door and asking the kids to come out and play but that might raise some eyebrows.
Is everyone tucked inside by the TV or playing video games? Are there kids playing in the snow in your neighborhood?
