"One day it occurred to me that it had been many years since the world had been afforded the spectacle of a man adventurous enough to undertake a journey through Germany on foot. After much thought, I decided that I was a person fitted to furnish to mankind this spectacle. So I determined to do it. This was in March, 1878." Mark Twain, A Tramp Abroad
First Snow Lesson
A baby's life is oriented around 'firsts.' First tooth. First word. First steps.
Two weeks ago we took Penelope out to play in the snow for the first time.
She got to experience her first snowball.
And learn what freezing water tastes like.
She wasn't impressed.
Sometimes life's little lessons are hard to swallow.
She quickly recovered, and the snow was soon her friend again.
