I got to take Jon and Becca sledding this past Tuesday with my mom's group. I was a bit apprehensive since the last time they went sledding the barely lasted 10 minutes. When we got there the hill was pretty steep and almost solid ice. I had to grab Jon and head down the hill with him before he could get too scared. And it worked - he loved it!! Becca did too. I think it actually helped that it was icy. It was more like a slide and there was no snow to get in the face.
After many times going with Mom, I finally talked Jon into going with some of the other kids. Yah!
Becca went quite a few times with me and some with another mom. Eventually she did go twice with Jon, but I don't think she liked walking back up the hill without a Mom. She lasted 45 minutes though which is awesome and then chose to sit on the bench and watch for a while as the bigger kids finished up.
