On the second day of the New Year, the snow fell and blanketed our Michigan yard. Cameron finally had an opportunity to try out his new sled. Friend and neighbor, Emma, was happy to assist. She couldn't decide which was more effective- pulling the sled or pushing it from behind.
The pair had a great time as Emma created an imaginary story in which she and Cam were trying to hide from "the bad guys." Even though the snow didn't stick around for more then a couple of days, it certainly served its purposed of providing some winter fun.
Back indoors, new track and train cars arrived later in the week providing additional engineering for father and son. Chris cleverly placed Cam's chair over the track, creating a big tunnel for the train to traverse. Stella, the cat, however, was not nearly as enthralled with the process. Cam thought it was quite cool to see each train car disappear underneath him and reappear on the other side!
It was a good week and on a personal note, Chris and Jane made a commitment/resolution to continue a healthy lifestyle of exercise and good eating. Although Cam certainly doesn't need to watch his calories, his parents do!!
People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas. ~Author Unknown
