And let the snow fall

Hey Everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying your weeks, and if you’re from Michigan, I hope you are enjoying the snow. I’m from Springfield, IL, so I am definitely not used to all of this snow. I also never remember anyone ever telling me that Holland got so much snow. I had never even heard of “Lake Effect” snow. My first winter at Hope was a definitely a surprise to me, because I had never seen so much snow in my life.

Here are some fun things I like to do in the snow:

  1. sledding
  2. make a snowman
  3. ski
  4. snowboard
  5. make snow angels
  6. make an igloo or snow fort
  7. snow ball fights
  8. iceskating
  9. eat snow
  10. cross country ski
  11. make snow ice cream
  12. drink hot chocolate
  13. lick icicles

Even though winter isn’t my favorite holiday, I have definitely found fun activities I enjoy. Plus, the more I’m around the snow the more I like it, or at least that is what I tell myself…  Plus Boyne Mountain and Crystal Mountain are not too far from Hope, so going on a quick ski trip is always a fun option.
