Snow and a Funny little boy

We got blasted here in Ogden yesterday with a snowstorm. I had watched the weather on monday, so I knew it was supposed to snow, but they underestimated our snowfall amounts. I had to go out to run some errands and take Josh to his group therapy. For the first time in a few years, I got stuck several times. Not enough to have to dig myself out, but the kind where you go back and forth in place until you can get going again. It was not fun. So I took some pictures yesterday around 1pm. Keep in mind it snowed another 4 inches after these pictures. This picture shows the ruler at 13 inches.


And today I was folding laundry and Josh was wandering the house. A few minutes later I could hear him in his room, but he never came back out. I walked in to check on him and he had taken toys out of his rubbermaid toybin and had climbed in. I know for most of you that is funny, but nothing big. But for Josh this is huge. He still has Physical Therapy to help him learn how to climb over, onto and up. He is very timid about the climbing and does NOT attempt any climbing of his own. So this was a huge thing for him to do!! It made my day!

Holy cow that is a lot of snow. Well for me anyway. I'm never been in 13 inches. Crazy! And yeah for Josh!! I bet your heart was jumping inside to see him do that himself. That is so great. Therapy is working! Yeah!

Man thats a ton of snow! We had one storm where we got 4 inches. Other than that a couple here and there. Good luck shoveling.
Way to go Josh! I'm so glad he is making progress here and there.

Good for Josh. I hated the snow yesterday. It was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO miserable shoveling ten inches of heavy snow.

I am so happy that snow didn't make it to my house. My mom said it was HORRIBLE. By the looks of your pictures, yuck.

As for little Josh, that is so exciting. Not only does he look cute in the bucket, he looks a little proud of his bravery. Hiphip-hooray!

I so do not miss the snow. I would die if I had to go anywhere in that stuff. I am glad to see that Josh is making progress. He looks so cute in the pictures.
