An Eliana first: She fed the sled-eating tree.

This year Eliana has full confidence to tackle the backyard sled hill by herself. There is a gently sloped, wide-open diagonal path, with a long flat bottom, which makes it about as safe as sledding gets while still being fun. The only exception is a solitary cherry tree, about the same age as Eliana, whose six-inch trunk seems to posses magnetic powers. Fortunately, it’s near the top of the hill, so while it did literally stop Eliana in her tracks, it was only for a moment.
