Kids Get to Have All the Fun
Our house backs up to a narrow patch of woods. Our children have enjoyed exploring in the woods from the time we first moved here. Usually they spend their time exploring the creek they discovered in the woods and so we get regular updates on the conditions of the creek. For a time the creek was swollen with flood waters from all the rain we'd been getting. Now, much to their joy, the creek is frozen solid. I'm thrilled, that even while in this deep chill, our children are getting much needed fresh air and exercise. They are just thrilled to be able to slide around on a patch of ice.
