We had snow on the ground for over two weeks and the temperatures were in the teens for the last couple nights so are little pond froze over. We tested it out every day to see if we could go ice skating. On Sunday night the temperature dipped down almost to zero. So on Monday James went down and tested it . . . it was thick enough! So we all bundled in our very warmest cloths, grabbed are ice-skates and ran outside.
First we had to shovel off all the snow and sweep it off to make it as slick as possible. David was the first one to try it out and it worked! It was as slick as ice. In no time at all we put on our skates and where enjoying this thrilling winter sport. Preparing the ice was tremendous work but fun because we were doing it together. It has been a test on our patience especially since last year it never got cold enough.
