We have lived in Missouri for three winters and not ONCE have we bought a sled. Our first winter here (we arrived in December) it snowed a good snow. We played for days!!!
This year, our last winter in Missouri, we decide to buy sleds. Makes zero sense, I know, but we wanted to create memories.
Thursday evening Addyson and Eligh got to go sledding, while I stayed inside with Kinsley (she was still recovering from being sick).
Friday I took the kids out twice to play and then again yesterday they played.
I do believe, we have created some memories.
