Ice Skating and Hockey


After all the flooding and freezing we have had, we now have a great ice rink out back. We had to shovel snow off it this morning, but by this afternoon it was really good ice again!


Elisabeth and I are really enjoying the chance to skate and play hockey. Or at least try to play hockey…


The General loves to chase (and steal) the puck! 😉 He’ll run beside us on the ice, waiting for us to hit the puck. Whenever he gets to it first, he picks it up and runs out into the field and waits for us to chase him. Walking across a corn field in skates isn’t very comfortable, so we try to get the puck first..

Sometimes he gets in front of the puck and it whizzes under his feet (Like in the picture above)


Neither of us mind the cold, but because of the wind chill our faces got frozen feeling fast, so we had to come in sooner than we would have liked.


Thank you for visiting A Homespun Country Life!
