Hey Kim – I bet you didn’t remember that we live on a lake! Looks like a lovely autumn day, doesn’t it? Nahhh. This was Christmas Eve, and that’s just two or three inches of solid ice. And, while not very good to drive on, (we watched the UPS truck get stuck, and who says country living is boring?) it was a blast to go sledding. One push from the top of our driveway, and the kids were able to go all the way across the road. Madeline couldn’t quite get the steering …..
But, she slowed down, and gave us the wave!
Eventually, they figured out how to turn and lean so that they made it all the way to the end of the road.
And, please don’t panic about children sledding in the street. We live on a cul-de-sac that has four houses on it. One neighbor was with us, one is never home, and the third has a straight shot view down the road. Safety first.
