winter children

Even though the weather is cold, we still make a point of spending either the morning or afternoon outdoors. Because Remy and Wilder are not yet in school, staying indoors all day long is enough to make us all go crazy. We all feel better (and much more tired) after getting some Vitamin D!

The other day when we were at the park, I was trying to convince them to go back home so that I could start lunch. Remy turned to me and said, “but we are winter kids, mum. We don’t need to go inside. We are warm enough out here.” It was so sweet and innocent and I was really proud of her for saying that. I think that it was about -20C that morning and we had already been out for over an hour, but the cold wasn’t phasing her. If only I had the same ability to always look at life through rose coloured glasses.

This morning we decided to stay home and go sledding on our little hill. We worked on our snow fort and played pirates on the jungle gym. It was just below zero that morning (which is incredibly warm for the end of December), so the cats were sunning themselves on the deck. That is, when they weren’t eating compost with our dogs.

This is just a regular thing that we do everyday and I probably take for granted at times. I wanted to document it at least once, because they won’t be this young forever. I feel lucky to live where we do and with our winter children.
