Winter 2009

Winter 2009 is shaping up to be a cold, blustery, snowy, icy, year and my kids couldn't be happier. They don't have sleds but they do just find going down the hill on their butts. We talked about getting them sleds this year but honestly, why? They would probably kill themselves coming down the hill on a sled. I think this way they have a little more control.

Handsome has been going up the hill alone since the end of last winter. It took me 2 years to let him go alone. My daughter, Goddess was allowed up there this year which is simply crazy to me. She is so much smaller than my son was when we used to walk him up there, now she is going alone. When she asked this year I told her maybe next year but my husband trumped my year wait and she was told she could go up. Watching her climb the hill and go down the ice rock makes my heart sink each time but would I have thought she was ever really ready? The answer is, probably not! I still cringe when my 5.5 year old, who is the size of a 7 year old goes up. I am happy they are having fun and hopefully these are the things they will remember when they are angry teens who hate us.

My granddaughter lives in Louisiana. They had snow for the first time in many years this year. All my granddaughter wanted for Christmas was a sled. She didn't get one. It probably won't snow again in Baton Rouge for many years
