Week 4 Project 52

sledgingLast Saturday morning was time for some snow play with Daddy time.  H and his Dad made this snowman together.   He’s wanted to make a snowman for ages and we’ve been waiting for enough snow.  The snowman has been out in some more snowfalls since, as you can see by today’s Saturday is Caption Day photo.

By Sunday the snow had cleared off the roads enough for H to make it to a friend’s birthday party that was being held quite a way across town.

Later on Sunday it started snowing again and that evening we got a text to say that H’s school would be closed on Monday.  I looked after H and his friend for the day.  We went out sledging in the morning to burn a bit of energy off before lunch.  We stayed on the nursery slopes and well away from the teenagers on the local equivalent of a sledging black run.  There were sledging races between the two boys.  Sometimes I went down with H, sometimes he slid down on his own.

snow playH was disappointed to hear that Tuesday was going to be a school day again.  There have been opportunities to play with the snow though on the way to and from school of course.  After school play in the garden has been a winner with his sand toys being put to an alternative use in the snow.

I’ve been out walking in the snow for some exercise – it’s quite hard work walking in deep snow and Walking through the snowwe are lucky to have a couple of lovely parks on our doorstep.  I couldn’t resist taking loads of photos of the snow (like just about everyone else I think).  One of my favourite shots is my silent sunday picture this week (on my other blog A Little Luxury For Me). This is also a lovely shot I think of the trees against the snow and against a sky full of more snow.

sliding to schoolAs the week wore on the snow got more compacted and turned to ice.  The school run became the school slide.  H was moving slowly over the ice and walking to school was taking ages.  In the end I got the sledge out and pulled him to school one day.  The sledge was really easy to pull on the ice and only one of us had to worry about staying on our feet.

  2. Hs hat is so cute, I think all the children in the country must have been gutted about going back to school on Tuesday. I kind of want it just to go away now I think! That tree photo is beautiful!

  4. Lovely snowy pictures. It’s raining here now and the snow has just about gone. It doesn’t usually make me happy but I have to go shopping tomorrow to buy birthday presents so I’m glad it’ll be gone by morning!

  6. Isn’t it funny how snowy woods just look so sinister?

  7. Gorgeous photos! One thing with all this snow is that it makes a great setting for photos. My boys went back on Monday but they were very unimpressed. It has all gone here now which I’m quite glad about.

  9. I love the snow lacing the beautiful trees in the park, bet it was chockablock full of children playing? Sledges are a really good idea for the school run.

    Great photos, that park looks an amazing place for sledging!

  15. Our snow turned to ice to, we’ve had to stay in as managing a pram and helping a free range toddler in the ice is beyond my skills! Great snow photos though, looks like you had lots of fun.

    You really have had the snow in a big way! It looks so beautiful and so much opportunity to play. Not so good when it turns to ice and you have to navigate your way through he slippy bits. Gorgeous photos, thank you for linking up to Country Kids and I hope the icy stuff melts quickly for you now.

    Snow on the trees – beautiful. Our snow has gone now, but we had fun while it lasted. I know it can be a bit of a pain, but when it first falls, it’s gorgeous and the children love it.

    The snow was fun and was good exercise but i must admit i’m glad its gone now! We did a school run with the sledge as well – soo much easier and quicker. Now for the wind and the rain!

  30. emily says:

    I love that snowman shot, and your snowy trees as well! I haven’t done any exercising outside, but hopefully when the temps get warmer (and by warmer, I mean freezing), we might have to do some outside fun!
