One thing I love about Russ is that he always does things in a big way. He isn’t a showy guy, but he has big ideas. When he builds a snowman with the kids, it is big. The archway (in the photo) couldn’t be helped, after all, he is an engineer. I once asked him to build a little tree house for the kids and he did… with screened windows, a front door, and a little deck. I probably shouldn’t mention the ice rink I asked him to build once, since each year we debate whether or not to repeat it. The rink was great fun, but it took an incredible amount of time to maintain. Crazy!
Russ took the five youngest kids (everyone but Little Man) out on cross country skis today. They loved it! Honeybee enjoyed skiing so much more than I expected. Just before it got dark Ladybug and Boo went skiing for a second time. After awhile I went out on the front porch to check on them, and spotted them skiing together in the pasture. It was a sweet moment.
I hope you are enjoying your winter weather.
