Some of you may have noticed, it has snowed.
As we are not Canadians or Austrians who only a get a few feet of snow compared to our deadly couple of inches-half the country has ground to a halt. Unfortunately the half that is still working includes my husband and son. But hey.
It seems you are never too old to build snowmen and igloos-which is good to know. They trudged home well after midnight.
We did a little learning time too today. Some reading and geography. Another home ed family came over and the children learned a bit about snowflakes and then we went back to their curriculum on mountains and volcanoes. They learned about how the Himalayas are being formed and made some of their own plate tectonics out of biscuits and ice cream. Once the experiment was over there was nothing else for it-they just had to eat it!
More snowman building had to take place of course.
