The MYP were actually itching to be back to their routine. That's what they said last night anyway. But when taps blew at 6:45 this morning, they weren't so eager.
I'm beginning the new year with fun things like washers full of dirty laundry and disputing charges on credit card statements. Fun stuff, eh?
We used to have a magnet on the fridge that said, 'may our house be warm and our friends many...'. Well such was the case. The wood stove kept us
We had some over for New Years Eve. It was really nice. The only problem with the people we all invited? They like to talk! The adults ended up not playing any games at all! Just visit, visit, visit for hours on end (while sweating near the wood stove). After the night was nearly over I realized something actually quite profound. No one brought anything sweet for dessert! I hadn't made anything since I assumed there would be at least two pans of bars/brownies. But nothing! And what made it even more interesting? The kids didn't even notice.
This is a 10:03 am view during winter break.
The Chairman and I headed off for the woods yesterday. It was beautiful! I'm starting to really like winter! Sorta.
There was even a bit of swimming involved during winter break!
