Over the last month we have had a few snowstorms. Nothing like the record breaking snow fall of last year, but enough for the kids to have a good time.
Each time it snows though, we have to shovel. This can be back breaking work, so any assistance, however small, helps…
Both the wee girl and the 6yo love to help daddy. Shoveling snow becomes a game if it means that they can get outside and do jobs. And, actually, they are a help. The 6yo at least :)
Snow can be heavy, but we have little shovels for the kids to use. Still, it takes some effort to lift a shovelful and toss it out of the way.
That doesn’t stop either of them from trying!
Of course, like most good things, it comes to an end and they get distracted. On this occasion it was by burying their arms in snow.
Which of course results in wet/cold hands! For the wee girl, an arm was enough. But the 6yo was up for more, and his dad got distracted too… So, before I knew it, the 6yo was completely covered in snow!
Needless to say, this was the end of our outdoor adventures, and a rather cold 6yo came inside for hot chocolate :)
