The snow is back and the kids could not be more excited. Before Christmas, they had built a really nice snowboard and sledding hill in the front yard.
They packed the recycling bins with snow to form bricks and then built a mound that was about 5 feet high. It had a smaller slope for snowboarding and a higher slope for sledding. It also had steps up the side and then a berm at the bottom to keep the kids from flying into the street.
For Christmas, the boys got snowboards, and they were really starting to gain some skill before the rain came and washed away all of the snow. The one thing that was left in our whole neighborhood was some of our sledding hill.
As soon as we finished school on Wednesday, Matthew was back to work, trying to rebuild it.
