Our third snowstorm in three weeks didn’t drop quite enough snow to make snow cream, but I’ll happily settle for lacy trees and a day off from shoveling.

Especially since all those balls I tossed up as high as I could before my vacation last week are now bouncing madly all around the house. So much to do before February ends.

Now, if you’ll excuse I need to go lift some weights. I’m gonna need a lot more loft if I’m going to survive Spring Break 2.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book, Did Dinosaurs Have Belly Buttons?, is currently planned for release in 2018. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at, chatting about books and the writing life at, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

  1. Thanks for visiting my posting about Snow Cream. It’s a simple and delicious recipe; something I learned how to do when I was growing up in the mountains of North Carolina.
