Last winter JSL was too little to go out and play in the snow. This year it is quite different. Not only is he ready to go outside and play, but he is walking on his own.
Several weeks ago we had a pretty large snowstorm on a Friday. The next morning we all went out to shovel, play in the snow and watch the little guy play for the first time. I happened to capture video very early in his exploration. Here it is:
