Sledding in July

I was going through storage today, when the boys spotted our snow sleds packed away among the luggage and the snow boots. Cries rang out and they were aghast that we would dare presume sleds were just for winter. I handed over the sleds to four eager little boys with my mind racing as to just what they planned to do.

It didn't take them long to find the perfect fit for a snow sled with no snow. Why not use it on the play set slide?

So I watched the boys ascend our play set clutching their sleds. Once at the top of the slide, they mounted the sleds and grasped the handles. With one heave, they whizzed down the slide only to land with a thud in a fresh patch of mud. They emerged dirty and a little winded, but totally giddy from the experience.

They taught me a lesson. Who knew snow sleds could be so much fun in July?
