Mid-Winter Ice Challenge












The water balloons were filled and frozen, a mallet was used to pounded the ice. Three buckets of icy water!

There's a charity donation challenge doing the rounds on Facebook - the Ice Challenge! It was only a matter of time before our active Facebook children found themselves nominated (by one of their cricket coaches). The challenge must be completed within 48 hours, filmed and uploaded to Facebook, specifying your chosen charity and the friends you in turn nominate to carry on the challenge.

Master T and Miss N relished the chance to douse Miss G - and then push her into our very cold swimming pool (we have had frosts recently).










Another tray of ice balloons for three more buckets of icy water and Miss G had a chance to "assist" her twin in her challenge. Times like this I'm pleased to NOT be on Facebook - and that we have mild winters!

Quite fun to see the children in shorts, in the sun, when you say mid-winter! We are in mid-summer and wear polar fleece! :-))

It was about 20C at the time Mary. Today we had a high of 25C. Many of the winter days in our area are delightful - possibly like your summer!

My goodness, it looks like Summer there! It's freezing down here! What a great initiative!!

Okay we have now temperatures around 25 to 28 degrees C so we can use a bit ice water ourselves but I still can't call this winter but it is a lot of fun for sure.

Freezing, crazy children! Notice Master T didn't volunteer;)

He’s not on Facebook (yet) so hasn’t been nominated. He was more than happy to 'help out’ and co-ordinate the filming!

what a challenge! I can't stand cold water - I don't swim in the sea in Australia (!!) so this would have been my biggest nightmare! They seem to have enjoyed it though!

I really think this is wonderful, Karen, and surely one of the better things on FB. They look like they had lots f fun doing it.

Have a great weekend!
