The Joy of Nylon Coated Kids
So, I forgot to post last week about nylon jackets, snow pants and good boots. We were outside on the playground and discovered a large patch of ice. Now, some teachers would freak out and keep their kids off of the ice, but I remember the thrill and terror of sliding on the ice in my boots as a kid, so off we went with very close monitoring. It didn't take long for one of the guys to discover that if you climb to the top of a small snowbank and get an off-balance, unplanned slide down the snowbank, you get a real thrill when you hit the ice! Then, there was the 'trip and fall forward belly flop sliding across the ice like a seal' move that was an immediate hit with the rest of the crowd and soon, there was a line-up waiting for their turn to see how far their nylon jackets and snow pants would take them! Thank you for brightening our day with the needed 'equipment' to really enjoy a Minnesota cold snap... It was a lot of fun to watch (I did NOT belly-flop or snowbank slide! I did sing "It's So Nice on the Ice" and recite "How to Talk To Your Snowman" for the kids' listening enjoyment!)
