We've had a February like never before. Crazy calendar busy! I typically love February. It is the love month of course, but it usually brings cold weather and white spaces on our calendar. Not so much this year!! It's been one project, party or program after another at school and lots going on with church. Not a lot of down time! Well, except for this week! We've had bitter cold and 3 days of ice-out-of-school days so far!! That's my ideal week!!
And at least the past 3 days, that's what we've done! We've been sledding and eaten lots of snow/ice! We've had P.E. outside and run up and down our driveway doing jumping jacks, deep breathing, lunges, etc. to make sure we stay sane even in the bitter cold! :) We've enjoyed board games, slam dunk and 3 point competitions on our indoor hoop! And bonus for me, there's been no rushing!! I haven't felt the need to put on make-up. Nobody has been forced to get dressed, and when they did to go outside, they came back in and put on jammies! We've had leisurely breakfasts and lunches and even designated reading time! I even let them play the Wii a smidge today! I have loved these past few days!! And my littles have too!!
So thankful for this icy blessing!!
