Sometimes I get in the mood to do something fun.
My husband and children would attest to the fact that I'm am NOT at ALL spontaneous.
But sometimes, sometimes,
I set my work aside and try to remember to have fun.
Like when we did this.
It's a step for me--a big step.
So on Friday,
I announced to my crew that I was going to take them sledding in town at the sledding hill,
which is just the hill leading to the ball field in the big town with a population of like 225.
I thought it would be fun for all the kids to go,
but my bigger kids didn't.
They didn't want to go and so I let them stay home.
I headed out with Andrew, Christopher, Elijah, Ruby, Ivy and Elizabeth.
It was a balmy day and our snow is pretty much all melted so that's why we headed to town.
I was a little worried when we pulled up next to the ball field because there wasn't a whole lot of snow there, either! There was enough to slide down on and it's a good thing it wasn't deep because I forgot that I don't even own a pair of boots!

Ruby blazed her own trail
Straight line all the way down!
Andrew was a good helper--up and down!!
I even went down one time with Elijah on his sled
but then he told me I shouldn't ride again
'cause I was too big.
That's always good for Mom's self-esteem.
Andrew, always the hot-rod.
Bipper takin' a break
makin' a train that stayed together all the way down!
Baby 'Lizabeth stayed asleep the whole time
in the van 5 ft from me.
I kept checking on her and she kept sleeping!
It was a good afternoon.
