My favorite thing about winter

My favorite thing about winter (if you can call it that this year) is the stark beauty of the world around us. Last year our sledding trips at the gold course stand out in the same way as the frozen pond with dramatic skies. It's like our Big Sky time of year.
teaching friends' kids to skate.
while some of our other kids lay on the ice together to talk in the background.
and around us the Big Skies watching our children, reminding us of our small part of the big world we live in.
