They come a-swishing by

(I found this post that I was working on in early February, but which got buried.  I am now resurrecting it, even though it’s 60 degrees and sunny today.)

We’ve had significant snow on the ground for TEN glorious days now, and some of our kids have taken to living in their ski bibs.  Ski bibs are warm and waterproof, and if you wear them all day, you are always ready to go out and brave the snow to bring in the mail, go to town, or try out the Asselin’s sled hill.

The thing about bibs is that they are nylon and thickish, and so that even if you walk like a saddle-sore cowpoke, they swish when you walk.  This means that our kids cannot sneak up on anyone.  I can always tell when someone’s approaching, because without fail, they come a-swishing by.
