In the summer we bought a sled and told Aneliese that in the winter it would snow and then we could use the sled. Every so often she would ask when winter would be or if I thought it might snow today. Then we had a couple of false starts when she was very excited to see the snow falling only to have it quickly melt. And then, yesterday morning, we awoke to a lovely blanket of snow! We walked to the grocery store and the "sumpin" (she keeps forgetting what it is) was all that Aneliese had hoped for. It was also far more of a work out than I had hoped for!
