We are still having temperatures below zero on some mornings. We also received a few more inches of snow. The local paper said we have had 41.5 inches of snow this year and the average temperature has been zero. We are getting an idea of what life feels like in Alaska! There have been very few days that the temperature was warm enough for the children to go outside to enjoy the snow. On days that were warm enough they enjoyed sledding, building igloos, etc. The boys had Stormy the pony pulling several sleds. Lovina uses Minnie, our miniature pony, to pull her sled.
