Into the school forest today. The snow had melted completely for a few days but it was due to snow again. In the meantime we wanted to walk; move our bodies which are quickly becoming heavier with all the holiday excess! This place is perfect to walk through with the kids. Flat, forested and full of lean-to shelters built by other kids who have been playing in the forest. We found several and then built our own at the end of the walk. I wished I could have just let the kids run loose (and watch them from the warm confines of a living room or kitchen) but no such luck. We were all driven inside by the cold and a need for lunch.
