“Our favourite amusement during that winter was tobogganing. In places the shore of the lake rises abruptly from the water's edge. Down these steep slopes we used to coast. We would get on our toboggan, a boy would give us a shove, and off we went! Plunging through drifts, leaping hollows, swooping down upon the lake, we would shoot across its gleaming surface to the opposite bank. What joy! What exhilarating madness! For one wild, glad moment we snapped the chain that binds us to earth, and joining hands with the winds we felt ourselves divine!” - Helen Keller
On Dad's day after Christmas holiday we got it into our heads that we should find the best sledding hill nearby. It was cold but the sun was shining and so were their faces before it was through. They trekked up and down the hills for a good long time. Then we loaded up three very wet and happy kids for some hot baths and hot chocolate.
