I have to grudgingly admit that winter does have it’s advantages. On Thursday after it stopped snowing, I took 7 kids (by myself) sledding to the hill at the amphitheater. I had Brynn, Kayla, Garion, Grace and Meg, and Tyler and MaKenna. We had a blast! Kayla in particular has been asking to go sledding for weeks! We didn’t even own a sled until about 2 weeks ago and since then have just been waiting for the snow. It finally came. And it came hard! Wednesday night and Thursday it snowed pretty hard, then Friday it stormed really bad all day and rumor has it, it is suppose to snow and storm all weekend. Although, here it is noon on Saturday and not a flake yet today. Maybe it will hit tonight. Anyway, the kids had a blast sledding and afterward we all came back here for a cup of hot cocoa! We made it sledding for about an hour before the girls all got too cold. Since we only had 3 sleds for the 7 kids they had to share, but the 4 year olds had a hard time getting up the hill and down by themselves. They need a parent to help, so I would like to get another sled so that while Garion is doing his thing, either Jason or I could be taking the girls down the hill. So mainly, while Meg, Tyler and Garion sledded, the girls and I played in the snow at the foot of the hill. At the end of the hour, when we were leaving, they took off their gloves and all their fingers were bright pink and ice cold! So I took a picture of them all saying “Burrr!!” and holding out their hands. Super cute!!!
