Learning to Ski

Today was a day off for our kids, it was parent/teacher conferences. We had some fresh snow this morning so we went to a hill in the park near our house and strapped the skis onto the kids. 
Marin really got the hang of it, the boys are starting to get it, but they found it a bit trickier. We'll keep at it. :) They had fun though and given time I think will really learn to love it.

Skating!

Ian made us a skating rink in the backyard!
We have had some cold weather, -25*C it was this morning, berrrr! It warmed up to -16*C after lunch and so we went skating. It was the first time for all the kids, and Ian and I hadn't been in about 10 years. 
Ian and I remembered how to skate thankfully, and managed to stay on our feet the whole time. 
Ian gave the kids a little lesson. 







I pushed Asher in around on the ice so he was part of the action too, he took a little nap though. Such a cutie! He was so snug and warm, when I brought him in the house all this fingers and toes were so warm. :)
Hot chocolate with marshmallows to help warm up afterwards of course. :) 

So good to be in Canada! Such fun!

Fall Fun

It is still technically fall, but the difference in the temperature from last week to this week tells us that winter is starting. We are having temperatures below 0 and it is cold. I dug out all the winter gear and the kids have found it exciting to get all dressed up in hats and mits, if only the excitement would last...
Anyway yesterday being Remembrance Day and there being no school we spent some time out in the yard during the sunny afternoon. We raked up the leaves from the maple tree and the kids enjoyed the fall fun that they have been missing all these years.





(Asher had laid down in the pile of leaves, Marin and Jeriah joined him, Corban was on his way to join, but then Asher got up and wouldn't lay down again.)

Here they are in action. :)
