So it is winter – what does that mean? Shorts, sun and less sweating than in summer? OK, then you might be in Texas, Florida or California, here in Quebec it stands for snow, cold, wind, snow, short days and have I mentioned snow? I have to admit that I wanted to return this particular winter, because I think that it is broken (not much snow, freezing rain all over the place and yo-yo temperatures), but that’s not the point.
Nico loves being outside and he doesn’t really care what kind of weather or temperature it is, so one day it had snowed not long ago and we were shoveling the deck in the backyard and Nico makes a swinging motion and points to his swing set out in the yard. I look at him and at the snow covered swing and thought – what the heck, why not.
