Snowed In Again
We woke up this morning to 8 inches of fresh snow outside. I can't believe how much snow we have gotten this winter. Dakota has been out playing with his friends all morning. He just came in covered with snow, soaked to the skin. Now he is huddled up in his bed with a video game to try to warm up. I don't know if he'll try to go back outside today or not. He's really cold right now.
Since it is way to wet and cold to spend a lot of time outside, I'm sure we will spend a lot of time today playing games. We love playing all the great online educational games that are out there. Dakota has so much fun with them that he forgets that he is learning as well as playing games. There are so many great games out there. If he wants to learn about maps, or about words, or even about math, we can find an online game to learn about it.
Sometimes when it's cold like this, I like to bake. Baking is another way to work on math skills. Today, though, I think I would rather sit huddled under my blanket, playing on my computer more than anything else.
I wonder what kinds of things other people do on cold cold days like we've been having lately. I would love to get some comments about cold weather activities.
