Warm-weather sledding

Between snow days, Louise and Charlotte visited Durham Central Park this weekend to go sledding on a sunny, 7C day.  Katie and another of Louise's friends from preschool days, Alaina, joined them for the opportunity. 

Mother Nature is promising to send us another sledding opportunity this afternoon, but this time, the girls will have to wear coats.

Slip slidin' away...

We had a SNOW DAY!  (Or a few flurries, coupled with a school closure, depending on your perspective).  The girls were very excited.  They grabbed their sleds and played in the snow for a whole seven minutes, before dashing inside for hot cocoa.

They weren't quite done with jumping or sliding around, however, so we headed to Pump It Up for a few hours.

Structure-loving Louise was happy to return to school after a five day holiday (teacher work days + a public holiday).  To our delight, though, she did fill several hours of the unwelcome leisure time with independent reading.
