Winter January 30, 2011

When we were kids, we played a game int he winter called Fox and Geese. Kids today wouldn’t recognize it as a game, it didn’t take batteries, electricity or any other equipment. All it took was snow, winter snowsuits and boots. We walked a big circle in the snow and then made cross paths and…

January 17, 2011 Can you believe it is snowing!

We have snow falling, which is lucky because temperatures are expected to drop to below zero. I have discovered that people out of our area don’t understand why I am so happy to have snow. Snow serves as a big blanket and insulates the ground and what is below ground from the bitter cold. A…
