Homeschooling In The Snow

Snooowwwww Daaaaayyyy!!!! Did you feel the earth shake a my children one by one woke up to discover today's schooling would, for the most part, take place outside bundled up and squealing excitedly as they sled down the hill in our back yard?

Being a homeschooling parent, you know I couldn't help but include some amount of education besides the obvious PE. Of course, we had our daily Bible reading before heading out. We're reading the Bible Chronologically this year. The science learning started off well when my son found a leaf frozen inside a giant ice block. Then, upon their return from the snowy tundra, we talked about scientific terms such as DISSOLVE while making the hot chocolate after the snow play was finished. I quizzed about boiling point temperature as I made some ice candy (currently cooling in refrigerator), and we explored vocabulary tongue twisters as they drank the hot chocolate and ate. Tomorrow is a great time to start back to the books. Today, we'll enjoy homeschooling at its finest!
