New Walk/Uusi kävelyreitti

After homeschool today Mr D and I decided to go for a walk together. The Captain had found out about a local baseball team, and had taken Mr T for their first practice (he loved it, and made a lot of new friends, yay!). Mr A, Missy & Little Miss were already exploring the disappearing ice on shoreline.

In this picture both had wet pants and water in their boots ;-)

In one of these shots Mr A also got his behind wet as he crouched a bit too low ;-)
I sent the three of them inside to change clothes (I didn't get a picture of Little Miss out there).

So Mr D and I headed out, facing the lake turned right and followed the shoreline quite a long ways, stepping on rocks, occasionally on snow, and quite a few times stepping into water.

We discovered neat looking trees, bugs, spiders, little greenish buds on trees. And very clear water - a good thing, as that is what is coming out of our faucets :)

I think one of Mr D's love languages is Quality Time, he really enjoyed the one on one with mom.

This is how thick the ice was near land. It looks like floating slush, but wasn't :)

How long until ice out?

Löysimme tänään Mr D:n kanssa uuden kävelyreitin: rantaa pitkin kivillä (ja vähän järvessä ja lumessakin) kävellen! Meillä oli aivan ihanaa kahdestaan. Mr T oli ekoissa pesisharkoissa Kapteenin kanssa, ja kolme muuta lasta jouduin lähettämään sisälle, kun kumppareista löytyi puolikas järveä, ja housut ja sukat olivat kastuneet.


  1. Beautiful! You're making me want to get the kids back to the lake to explore. All the ice is gone here; kayakers out on the water last time we went for a romp.

  2. Ooh, son D wants to try the kayaks that came with the house so badly he suggested he takes one out now to break the ice more :-D
