FEBRUARY: AFTER THE STORM

The snow that started on Sunday still continued to fall on Tuesday, but this time the wind moved in. We had yet another snow day, so we relaxed throughout the morning and then thought we would try and go sledding again since we had so much fun the day before. But the wind whipped the snow at us and it stung our skin. As we walked over to the sled hill, we quickly realized that this was going to be nothing like yesterday. The snow was well up past our knees and the drifts were past my waist in some areas. But we valiantly tried to sled. We trudged up that hill, we lost Lucy once or twice and had to dig her out, and then we finally powered our way to the top and discovered the sled sank into the snow well above our heads. So no sledding for us. I think we braved the roads and went to see Kung Fu Panda 3 instead.  

Brrrrrr
After that snow experience we just stayed at home, cozy by the fire.

The boys had one more snow day to celebrate-three in a row- and the (thankfully) got a Valentine's Day package in the mail from Mimi and Papa. It gave them something to do in my 13th hour with them.
The weekend came too quickly after those snow days. Husband was working a super intense schedule from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. so I tried to get the kids out of the house as much as I could that weekend. We spent the day at the Space Foundation Discovery Center exploring their new math unit which WAS AWESOME. 
Caderyn designed his own video game creation, paying attention to height, width, and length in order for the pawn to successfully move through the game's maze.
We collected rocks from Mars in our rovers with specific directions we had to calculate into our computers.
Playing with heat sensory.
Checking out the 360 degree camera set up.

It was a fun day, a fun weekend.
Needless to say, the boys were pooped.
