A Sledding Slice
I got home from school today and L shared her idea of going sledding. See, since last summer we have been scheming up a plan to take little j sledding some beautiful winter day. Originally the plan included a snow day where we were free to enjoy a leisurely breakfast, bundle up, and sled for as long as our hearts allowed. Even though it has been an enjoyable winter, this day has never materialized. A two hour delay just isn't enough time for what we had in mind...
So, even though a quick afternoon romp to the park wasn't what was planned, it turned out pretty fun. I even discovered an orphaned pair of snow pants in the closet that I can now claim as my own!
We quickly and haphazardly threw on some sweats and snow clothes, loaded j into the car, and zoomed off to the park. Once we got to the actual snow I realized that I haven't been sledding since... well, I can't actually remember the last time (how sad!).
Nearby was a big hill with plenty of teens and tweens to scare any twenty-something away! So, we opted for the little hill stating that "it would be better for j over here". Soon enough the joy of sledding, making snow angels, and tromping through the dense snow returned to me. Even though I am with kids all day, it was nice to be the kid for a change.
All of this to say, maybe I can wait a little for Spring to come my way...
