My son declared today that on the walk home from the bus stop he wanted to climb the snowbank ALL the way to our house. The road we live on is quite steep so this seemed like an impossible task. I agreed but walked ahead since I was pushing the Queen in her stroller. We stopped and waited at the enterance to our driveway as he trudged along in the snowbank.
His pace was slow but he managed. I think his sister's clapping and cheering "Go DeeDee" kept his moral high. Once he reached our mailbox he looked back at his footprints and was clearly proud of his accomplishments!
It's simple moments like these that are missed when we depend on our cars or limit our children's play!
