Snow days are a rare occurrence around here. Not that we don't get enough snow--the city wasn't voted 'worst winter city' without reason. When you don't need to leave the house it doesn't seem reasonable to cancel school because it's snowy outside. Nevertheless, today was the perfect snow day. Terrible outside. We actually had plans this morning but everything was closed. So, I cancelled school.
Except for finishing the covered wagons we started yesterday. The kids begged to work on those.
And also, "Can we work on the Germany project for next week? That doesn't count as school, it's a project."
And "Can we do some snack thingy?"
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I guess I can just cancel math and grammar. I try and give them the day off, but they beg for learning. Who knew?
I load up plates of raisins, peanut butter, banana slices, apples, and mini-marshmallows. A few minutes of 'not learning' while everyone assembles...creatures, rapiers, and Daddy's head. Then they eat them. Except for Daddy's head. Ella was too full to eat that.
