Then we built a tunnel through the snow mountain that was perfectly Charlie sized… It was pretty entertaining, I would scoop out 1-2 shovels worth of snow and he’d say “will I fit yet, will i fit yet?” so I would let him try climbing into the cave like hole and he’d say “not yet, maybe in a minute”. When I finally broke through to the other side he screamed at the top of his lungs “I see light, I see light”…I was pretty sure the vibrations from his exclamations would cause an avalanche, but thank goodness it didn’t and he spent the next few minutes making the small hole large enough for him to climb through. But, when he finally sqeezed through he popped his head out the other side and said “it’s not right”. At this point I was confused and asked “what isn’t right about it”. He said” I can’t sit up in here and there isn’t enough room for Jack (his brother)” I said, “well it is a tunnel it isn’t supposed to be big enough for you to sit in there with Jack”. He looked at me strangely and said “i thought we were making an igloo”. At this point I just laughed.
After our tunnel making we did some sledding down the front yard, testing the many different sleds that Jack and Charlie have accumulated over the years. The saucer wasn’t the fastest…but charlie liked it the best. I am partial to the flimsy board sled myself.
