Snow Day!

Another day with a house full of kids.

School's closed for the second day in a row after the snow storm which didn't turn out to be quite as ferocious as expected but still a big one.

We ran an errand this morning if for no other reason than to get out of the house for a bit and the streets were mostly empty.

Once we got home, the kids geared up and headed for the yard to start digging some snow tunnels.

We also started planning an outing for the weekend (after some MORE predicted snowfall) where we'll build at least one igloo and possibly more for the Girl Scouts.

Being the slave driver I am, I made the kids take their spelling tests before they were allowed to go outside. They did poorly so I gave them another 5 minutes to study before the retest.

Second time's the charm I guess and they both improved dramatically so now they're out getting snowy. :)

Thanks for reading,
