Temperatures in the single digits for a couple of days allowed us to experience a frozen pond and a frozen ditch in the front yard.
This turned out to be a mini-field trip for our three oldest.
I have been reading aloud Hans Brinker or The Silver Skates.
Bo, Boo and LouLou went outside on one of the first warmer days after the cold snap.
I heard Bo say, "We're in Holland skating on the canals, come on!"
I grabbed the camera and snapped a few pictures of their Holland field trip...
one ditch in the front yard turned into a canal in Holland with a little imagination.
Here are the boys sitting at the end of the pond. They enjoyed kicking chunks of ice across the pond, hoping each piece would make it to the other side.
