So, I went outside and shoveled more snow than I have shoveled in years. Was I clearing sidewalks? No. Porches? Nope. I did nothing of the sort. I instead built two luxury snow forts from which my children and one neighbor girl engaged in a few rounds of snowball wars. It was good fun. We only had one wild snowball to the face accident. It was a mild accident, by snowball to the face standards. Overall, it was a whole lot of good fun. All kids should experience a good ‘old snowball war with snow forts. Childhood winters would not be the same otherwise.
