So Much Fun We Lost Our Hats

Hiberating indoors isn’t an option in our family for two reasons: first, no one burns any energy so no one wants to go to bed and two, some of the best fun can be made outdoors in the snow.

My boys played outdoors for hours at the neighbourhood tobogganing hill – making their own trails through the brush, building ramps and doing all kinds of crazy jumps. I find that they are more motivated to stay if they have each other. They tend to feed off each other’s crazy ideas and try to out do the others jumps, spins and turns. A competition of some kind always finds it way into their play these days.
