A Snow-Good Experience
By Beth Beutler
  

1     Derrick was excited. Kindergarten was cancelled this morning due to a snowstorm. He planned to go outside and build his very first "all by myself" snowman. He was now five years old and was strong enough to roll the sparkly clean snow into three balls the size of a bottom, middle, and head. His mother came outside with him, but he didn't want her help this time.
 
2     "I can do it myself, Mom," he called.
 
3     "Okay, sweetie," she said with a smile. He surely was growing up. Her breath made puffs of frost in front of her face as she proudly watched Derrick work. "Why don't I get you some clothes for the snowman?" she called.
 
4     "Okay, Mom," Derrick agreed.
 
5     Derrick's mom headed into the house. She gathered some buttons, a carrot, a scarf, mittens, and a hat. When she came back out, Derrick was lifting a large snowball onto an even bigger one.
 
6     Derrick's mom watched for a few minutes. She remembered that just last year Derrick wasn't quite strong enough to create the snowman himself. While she watched, he began to roll one more ball. This one was a little smaller. He carefully placed it on top of the other two.
 
7     "Okay, Mom. Let me have the stuff."
 
8     Derrick placed the buttons, scarf, and carrot on the snowman. He found some sticks to make arms. Then he attached the mittens. He stepped back to look at his new friend.
