We have been having lots of fun these past few weeks, and this week we got more snow! It is 18 degrees outside and still snowing as I write this. It snowed a bit last Saturday, so we all got on our snow clothes and made the trek to the school where there are big hills for sledding! The school is about a 1/2 mile from our house and the snow was blowing in our faces the entire way there. Ben tied the inner-tube to Annalisa with "Caution" tape, so she could drag it behind her fairly easily. Once we got there, Annalisa, Cole, Ben and I had a blast sledding down the big hills. We went fairly fast too, but Jacob was pretty scared and he would stop himself everytime, so he never made it down the hill. Cole had icicles on his eyelashes and a small wind burn on his cheek by the time we left. We went home, turned on the fire, and made hot chocolate so we could warm up. It was a true winter day!
Today the schools started an hour late (trust me, they would have been CLOSED in Texas!) and Ben had to start shoveling the driveway at 8:00. He was finished right when it was time to go at 8:40. That is a super work-out!
Last week Cole was in his first play....Colorado: A Land Through Time. He was Francisco Coronado and he did really well. Check it out at Feeling Froggy!
