So, while many of our friends are enjoying their winter break on the beach sipping boat drinks, we are still hanging out at home in the snow and cold…sipping hot chocolate. We could feel sorry for ourselves but instead we are taking advantage of the situation. The sun was shining today so the kids and I headed to the skating pond. It was a bit windy but we enjoyed our time skating nonetheless. Mason is a bit under the weather but even he tried out his new ice skates for a few minutes and then sat down to watch the other kids. Unbelievably, we had the entire pond to ourselves. After skating, the older three played in the snow in our cul-de-sac. They love making scary sledding runs down the enormous piles of snow. I have to admit that they are fun:) and it is a good way to go sledding without leaving home!
It is so awesome that we get this break from school right in the middle of winter so we are going to enjoy every minute of it! Have a great week mountain friends! And here’s to lots of snow and a great winter season….and to a very warm spring.
