The week before Christmas, we had a snowy day.
Well, sort of. There was snow to be seen on the ground, anyway. Not much, but enough. Around these parts that's not something you take for granted.
So I did what any schedule-driven homeschooling mom would do. I told the kids to set their books aside and go put on their now gear.
They had fun! And my daughter got a chance to use her new pink snow overalls.
The aftermath: a pile of wet coats, hats, mittens, snow pants, and socks. Not to mention boots; I'm sure there are boots somewhere under all of that.
Afterward we all had some rich, sweet hot chocolate...
...and then went on with our school day. It's strange to read "A Midsummer Night's Dream" while sipping hot chocolate by the fireplace in mid-December...
