Owen shot this video yesterday of us going down Senjak Hill. Kablarska street is blocked off to traffic by two garbage containers and made into a sledding hill. We are planning to go again today. I promise no more snow videos. it is just after so long in the tropics, I am really enjoying the winter. It reminds me of my childhood in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I am happy to experience this with my children.
I have used the opportunity to introduce the boys to the Olympic sports of luge and bobsledding. We did a bobsled competition last night in the house. They were having trouble understanding the concepts of tenths of a second and the lower number means a faster time and a higher place in the standings.
Yesterday both Nadia and I took advantage of having our housekeeper working this week and we both went for runs. I went outside and Nadia inside. Despite a temperature of -11 C, the whiteness was refreshing and I enjoyed a long run.
In the afternoon we almost completed our Christmas shopping. Nadia baked gingerbread cookies last night and we ate tacos. I hope I can take the boys to the Red Star basketball game this evening.
One thought on “Last Snow Video”
Nice posts Bill!
I recommend one movie to watch it with your kids… It’s an old movie from 1993 and you have probably seen it. If not you have to watch it in these cold days. It’s called Cool Runnings (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0106611/) and it’s based on a true story about the only Jamaican (!!!) bobsledge team that qualifyed for Winter Olympics. It nice comedy and it’s better because it really happend so I believe your kids are gonna like it and it will help them to better understand bobsledding. Nice to see you have a great time here in Serbia.
I wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
