Thursday morning, we officially had to break out the winter coats for the boys. It was below 30 degrees when NHL left for school and the high was barely going to make it into the upper 40’s. Of course that would not be too bad, but the wind has made it seem even worse. We bought NHL a new new coat at the end of last season when his old coat’s zipper broke and could not be fixed, but the new one barely fits him. It is fine for now, but we’re not sure if it will make the entire winter.
After TechyDad took NHL to school, I went digging to find the new coat that we bought JSL last year. I pulled it out of the bag from the store and tried it on him. It is a little big, but should be good for the cold months ahead. He loved wearing it around today. In fact, he complained when I tried to unzip it at the grocery store and remove his hands from the built in mittens. It was so warm and cozy that he fell asleep when going to school to pick big brother up from his after school club.
Here is the little guy modeling his jacket.
1. Personal nose warmer, 2. Hands are covered, 3. Shy guy ready to go
Now I just need to buy some new yarn to knit him a new scarf, check on the boots and snow pants for both boys and decide if I can get a new coat for myself.
So my question to you this week:
Are you ready for the cooler/cold/freezing weather? See covered most of the bases no matter where you live! If you are not ready, what do you still need to get?
