"a portrait of, and occasionally a quote from my children, once a week, every week, in 2017"

Jackson & Lily: The icy temperatures here mean some of the local and not so local lakes have frozen over. This thrills the kids, particularly Jackson who has dreamed of skating and playing hockey outside since he was very small. He skated afterschool one day on a local lake and this weekend we traveled 10km up a logging road to find snow and another frozen lake. I'm so happy for my boy. He's hopeful this cold will continue so he can return and play some more. Fingers crossed.

  1. He looks in his absolute element. Having seen so many photos of him playing the sport he loves so much I can completely understand the charm of a frozen lake! Love the snow too! x

  2. Wow! That looks amazing - skating outside is something you definitely don't get to do very often in the UK, except on a man-made ice rink! #LivingArrows
