This afternoon I came upon these three children sitting in the snow, resting their boots in the creek, and I commented that they looked like they might be resting on the sand with their feet in the water. Finn got my analogy and later took it a step further and asked if anyone wanted to make "sand balls".
This is perhaps the tenth time Fox made this jump over the creek- he first challenged himself, saying out loud, "I wonder if I can make it?" and then he tried it, and was so delighted with his success that he did it over and over again. I finally was asked to record it (he specified, "a video!"). Notice that how he has to adjust his body to account for the fact that he doesn't want to use his hands (his gloves are discarded in the snow, close by).
