What a great day it was. We woke up to find a quiet blanket of snow on the ground. How peaceful it is in the morning. I just love it. And I was glad that I didn't have to leave the house, but could do school from the comfort of my own home, and not have to brave the cold and snowy conditions outside.
At AM snacktime, the kids decided to eat really fast, and then go outside to play. They got a good 20 mintues in before it was time to come back inside and work some more. After we were done with school for the day (about 3:25), we checked the forcast and the radio station, and found out that Waverly had cancelled school for the day. Oops. No one gave us homeschoolers that memo! I didn't pass that little tid bit on to the kids :)
Scouts was also cancelled for the night, so we had a nice evening at home. We played "Scene It: Jr." That was a lot of fun. Thanks, Grandma Lyn, for buying us this fun game!
Here's a nice little clip from the boys making the snowman.Here's the snowman that my kids made. Didn't they do a good job. Complete with carrot nose and Cincinnati Reds hat!
Eme's so cute! Jimmy's a little blury, but you get the idea! Joe, the loner.
Tom making a snow angel. Hey, who left the gate open!
O.K., Jacob. I know that's not how we make a snow man. What are you trying to do? Throw the ball over the fence?
Eme's definately throwing that at someone!
All the kids together, working on the snowman. But wait, where's Joe?
