Much to the disappointment of my kid we haven’t had much snow this year.  On the brighter side we haven’t had to shovel and the big ice patch on our front lawn makes an adequate skating rink for three novice ice skaters.  Today the younger kids laced up their skates and took a whirl on the front lawn.  It was a beautiful day, very spring like, so the weather was perfect for spending outdoors.  They really seemed to enjoy themselves, even when they had a spill.  They would laugh and get back up to try it again.  What a great day!
