Cory loves his spider man snow boots and would live in them if we let him. Kevin has really tried to teach him they are for the snow and that when it snows, he can wear them. Well, it snowed here this week and Cory was the happiest little boy ever. He would look out the window all morning (he wakes up really early) and then run through the house yelling that the lights were on outside once the sun came up. He knows I won't let him go out and play until the "lights are on" outside. I've been sick, so I'd bundle him up and send him out while I stayed curled up in a blanket on the couch watching him from the window. He just stomps snow and pokes at it with a stick until I make him come in.
The other night when I was at work, Kevin had him outside playing in what was left of the snow and he see's Cory look up to the sky and say "thank you, thank you, thank you." Kevin asked him who he was thanking, and Cory said, "I'm thanking the clouds for the snow." It was so cute. I've taught Cory about rain coming from the clouds and he was smart enough to infer that snow also comes from the clouds. He is such a fun and smart little boy!
