We’ve been hoping for a good, substantial snow so that we can try sledding on the great hill behind our lot. The other side of the levee trail has quite a long slope toward the river, but it’s not so huge that we get exhausted walking up. It’s the perfect sledding hill. We got our first major accumulation last night, so we had a Snow Day and took the kids out for some fun. Sledding is one of my most fond memories from childhood, so I had a blast, too!
Liam doesn’t do well in snow and cold, and Prasad isn’t in any of these pictures because he wanted to go inside after a few runs down the hill… he was freezing, and his hands hurt terribly. I felt so sorry for him, but after he warmed up, he came back outside and went down a few more times. Sorin and I were the last two left on the levee, so we had some 1:1 sledding time. What was most amazing to me was the pure silence and stillness near the river. All you could hear was the snow falling… it was nourishing. I love unexpected days like these!
