I didn't expect Winter.
We have been in this house for two short months, and already we have seen our familiar spot in Summer, Autumn and now we've had a full dose of winter, dumped over top of Autumn.
So we headed out to our familiar spot, with a few layers of clothing, hats, mittens & sleds or disks. The boys flew down the hill that they usually run up to see the river. Then they ran back up. The boys played in the untouched snow until they could go no more. At last they turned around and saw it, our spot in the river.
Where are all the leaves? They're covered by the snow.
Now that the leaves are gone we can see the river so well!
The river isn't frozen, even with all of this snow!
The rocks are hard to see in the snow, but easier to walk on.
Later in the week:
The river is still NOT frozen... :)
the photos of our Sycamores a week ago? After a windstorm and now the snow, the leaves are gone and have been replaced with white. What a wonderful Thanksgiving we get to have!
