It’s very quiet here. We’re between snowstorms and Niek has taken Rowen and Nick to enjoy some sledding, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing with friends during the lull. Arden, Max and I “enjoyed” some warming vegetable soup (some of us liked it better than others, with Arden graciously offering to share his with Spin the cat):
The snow has been magnificent. The kids have loved every second, every snowflake, of it so far. Rowen has devised her own Extreme Winter Enjoyment sporting category:
And she and Nicky created some jolly snowpeople to populate our lawn:
And for tiny people who might disappear into the snow, there are train tracks galore to set up, tear down, and reconfigure endlessly:
Wishing you the beauty and peace that I associate with this time of the year, as we all renew ourselves for the coming spring. May your travels be safe and may you always be accompanied by one you love.
