Today we had one of those amazing homeschooling days. The kind of day where you and your husband look at each other and say. Thank God we homeschool. We had snow, which is not a norm for us. My 3 year old looked out the window at 7:30 this morning and said "Mommy it's snowing". I thought for sure he was joking. But sure enough we had snow. Huge flakes coming down. I grabbed the video camera and began taping.
We had a quick breakfast. Then I dressed the kids in triple layers to play in the snow. (we have had snow only once in the past 3 years so this was quite a huge deal for us).
My husband got up after the kids went outside. The baby was sleeping, so we dressed (baby monitor in hand) and off we went to join the kids. We had an hour snowball fight. My little guy enjoyed tasting the snow and was tickled that he could catch those huge flakes. What a great real life day of science and gym we had. If the kids were in traditional school, they would not have been home to share in the fun with us.
We felt so very lucky today to just enjoy fun together as a family.
