Ice Skating

Maybe we don’t want to get too serious about the January lists – not yet anyway.

Maybe we can squeeze in a little more vacation time.

Maybe we should throw the list away one afternoon and make a memory.

IMG_1972Seize the moment when the temperature is right, the ice is thick, and the kids are willing.

Dig the skates out, find the thick socks and enjoy the fresh winter air.

IMG_1965Nothing fancy. Just chore coats and warm hats and second hand skates on a farm pond.

No triple axles or anything quad.

IMG_1974Well…okay. Maybe there were a few quads. But they were unintentional ones with painful consequences.

Then we’ll top the afternoon off with hot chocolate while warming our toes in a grandma quilt.

Perfect.

Lists will wait, but kids grow up.
