This Sunday we got a bit of snow. Starting first thing in the morning Matthew was asking to go sledding (the snow wasn't even sticky to the ground). But by the afternoon there was a bit sticking to the ground so away we went. There was a whole crew of boys from the complex that went over to the school hill. They had a blast. Some of the bigger kids took turns going downhill with the little ones or pulling them on the sled. Michael liked to lie down on the sled either way.
(Michael is not falling off - he is purposely laing down and dragging his arms through the snow.)

Matthew learned from the bigger boys how to run, dive and slide head first down the hill.

Only one injury, when Matthew and Joel flipped the sled and snowplowed through the thin layer of snow and right into the gravel - with his face. Road rash! But he got up and kept on playing (after a minute of tears). Not too serious though.

With VERY rosy cheeks (we spent nearly 3 hours out in the snow), we all headed indoors for some hot chocolate and marshmallows. What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
