What We’ve Been Up To

We finally got snow on the ground over the weekend! It started Friday and there was enough to cancel our Bible study that morning … and that was about it. : ) It didn’t stop the munchkins from getting out to run around in it for a few minutes.

To our recollection, we think this is the first time he’s seen snow … he mostly just thought it was really cold and wasn’t terribly impressed. : )

We had another batch on Saturday morning and it stuck around for a good chunk of the day.

We made snow popcorn after playing in the snow … it was so good. It was actually supposed to be popcorn balls, but we didn’t have any luck getting it to stick together into balls. It didn’t affect that taste at all. : )

There was a Friday fun family night of bowling – a first for us with the kids.

There’s been a lot of reading on these cold days. I rearranged all my books in the school room and N1 discovered some chapter books on the shelves that she had forgotten about. The first Lemony Snicket book was devoured in one afternoon.

N2 also completed one of her chapter books that she has been working on for quite some time – The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznik. Of course, it always helps to have someone snuggled up next to you when you are reading on a cold winter day.

  1. We had snow a couple of weeks ago and it was lovely (& exciting!), but it melted as soon as it hit the ground. Snow popcorn? I'll have to look into that!

    I need to introduction Louise to Hugo Cabret. I think she might like it, especially since she's already seen the movie. ;-)

  2. I love pictures of kids in the snow. Snow IS magical but they make it more so, I think. And your kids are exceptionally cute. (In case you didn't know that already.)
