Snow Freaks

My son is now sick. I think it’s my fault. I must’ve overindulged him in too much snow.  I did get what I wished for.  We had a good amount of snow these past few days.


After seeing this much snow from my son’s bedroom window, it was only natural for him to want to go outside and play.

So last Friday, I took him out for a long walk in the woods.


It was -4C that day, but the cold did not seem to bother us.  We were having fun!  We crossed the woods to get to the other part of town.  Everytime we find a little inclined space, we take advantage in sliding downhill on his sled.

By the time we got home, he was literally spent.  He didn’t even wait to get to his room.  He just crashed on the sofa.


This past weekend, we went skating with some friends.  Because he is still too young to skate, we placed my son on a sled so he can still enjoy the ice with us.   It was very cool.  Unfortunately, that didn’t do him well.  He got cold.  And because he was also tired, getting sick was inevitable.


Now I am nursing him back to health.  Hopefully, we can cut the “down time” so we can enjoy the snow all over again.

    Wishing your son a swift recovery. I’m sure if you asked him, he would say it was worth it! I loved the snow pictures.

    Don’t blame yourself for that sweetie getting sick. He’s building his immunity and will be stronger for it!
    You now have a great opportunity to read stories to him; always such fun.

    It looks like fun! Kids get sick for whatever reason. One of my kids gets sick every time she gets overtired. The other hardly gets sick. Neither is related to weather.

      I guess I’ll just have to get used to this. Thanks for the insightful comment.

    Looks like fun! And hopefully he’s feeling better already.
    I love the stairs that show in the one picture. They look so elegant.

      He’s feeling better now. I just dropped him off to school this morning.
      Yep, I love those stairs too. Ironically, it’s one of the cheapest varieties from the catalog that we were shown. I wanted something that is simple to match the modern minimalist design that I was hoping to do in the living room. I’m glad you liked it. 🙂

    Pretty sure that a child getting sick is NOT your fault, but typical of children that age! Looks like a lot of fun getting sick, though.
