For those of you in the Northeast region I hope you all survived the snow safely!! We had a great time hunkering down and riding out the storm. Later in the day the older kids headed outside with Ian to shovel, snow blow and sled while I stayed inside with Ari. It was a bit too cold for him and quite honestly, too deep! And, while I'm being honest, I don't really like playing in the snow either! I'll do it to be with my kids but I don't enjoy it - not for one second! HA! I'd MUCH rather be inside playing, creating and/or snuggling.
Anyway, while the rest of the world had a snow day, we had school! I know, boo on me for making my kids school but honestly, they've got it good over here! They get more free time and more fun time than the kids in school any day! I will say that I let them have a pajama day AND we played games during school! AND they got to play in the snow both inside and out!
We carried on with our unit on Ancient Egypt learning how mummification works - I heard the word 'gross' at least a dozen times. We learned how farming works in the desert, thanks in part to the regular flooding of the Nile and we talked a lot about daily life. The children did their DEAR time and today Daddy was a "guest lecturer" (lol) and worked with them on fractions. (a subject that I abhor!)
