Our usual routine has been to go skating on Saturday afternoons, but the last two weeks we've actually had snow and so we figured we'd take the opportunity to go tobagganning instead. The kids love this ... better then skating. Last week we went as a family ... with Matthew all bundled up to watch us. The snow was fluffy and perfect for sledding ... and I forgot the camera. So I remembered the camera this time (unfortunately I was rather disppointed with the outcome as many were blurry, altho they did not appear so on the camera screen). This weekend Rob was buried in the books writing essays, so I went with the girls. The snow was very wet and not near as nice, limitting where we could sled, but the kids met other friends from school there and had a blast!!

Fun on the GT
Marietta and Rebecca hanging on to each other so they come down together
Yup thats me! Can you tell?

Unfortunately I missed pictures of the best times when we started to get more creative .... two crazy carpets, six passengers; three crazy carpets, eight passengers, etc. I was kindly reminded (and continue to be today) of why I do not like crazy carpets ... I only went for one such trip on these thin carpets that do nothing to protect you from the bumps on the way down ... and after that I had trouble walking ... ouch my tailbone ... today I could walk and stand okay, but sitting was still a challenge!!
Other then that not much exciting has been happening around here lately. The kids enjoyed a couple snow days over the past week or so (and Rob had one too) and they had a ton of fun at Winterfest at school on Friday. It's not every day they're allowed to have snowball fights at school ... and better yet ... to be allowed to throw them at the teacher too!! Rob is totally swamped in the books and is looking forward to Reading Week next week (where I've been given strict instructions not to make any plans for him as he'll need the whole week and then some to study). And I've just been busy doing ... well ... ah ... all those things that wives/mothers do on a regular basis.
