Pick your battles

The kids needed a wiggle break, so I told them to take Anna-Kate with them, run to the apple tree and back. The apple tree is about the half way point of our 30 acre backyard. I told them by the time they got back, lunch would be on the table.  This was a day that the sun was shining, but it was NOT warm enough for the snow to melt.

Audra left dressed in a coat, mittens, hat and bog boots. Apparently she stripped all her winter gear at the apple tree, piled it on Anna-Kate and in her words, she 'ran like the wind' back, tugging Anna-Kate behind her.  She claims that as long as she was running fast enough, the snow wasn't 'that cold'.

There are some battles not worth fighting.  And sometimes I just have no words.
