The kids and I have had a lot of fun today. At first we had daddy home with us but the storm passed through fairly quickly and daddy caught a ride to work.
After breakfast the kids and I sat down with some books and enjoyed a great read aloud time. We learned about food chains, life cycles, electricity and the education of Nicholas Benedict.
After that each of the kiddos took a crack at a subject in Khan Academy. Sean and Nate tried out some computer code and Emma-Lyn learned about Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.
After lunch we headed out into the winter wonderland. The kids coasted down our "hills" while I played shovel the snow shuffle. Levi was very excited to be out in the snow!
Levi and I came in once the shoveling was done. I put him down for a well deserved nap. Then I made hot chocolate for us and set up a game of Settlers. The kids were thrilled when they came in from the cold. It was a good game. Now they're just messing with the board and making up their own fun. I think they have incorporated the little wooden people from Caracassonne.
Soon, Marko will be home and we'll have hot bowls of chili for supper on this cold winter evening.
