This winter has been a blast. Lake Champlain froze across for the second year in a row, we’ve gotten plenty of snow without any mid-winter thaws, and sometimes sunshine even boosts temperatures into the twenties!
It’s usually not too hard for me to think of the subject of my weekly blog post – I think about the past week’s highlights: yummy meals, fun outdoor adventures, or successful projects with kids after school. Sometimes I scan through my most recent photos. Even though I already wrote a post this year about winter play, outdoor recreation was the clear highlight of my past week! We hiked Camel’s Hump again, this time equipped with sleds for the ride down. SO FUN. The lake froze across, providing us with miles of black ice to explore. We even enjoyed temperatures in the thirties on Mt. Philo along with crowds of happy sledders, skiers, jack-jumpers, walkers, and their dogs. I love living in Vermont, surrounded by people who love having fun in the snow!
