Snow Fiesta

Nothing better to a couple of kids than the first snow fall of the year.

I was thinking of my dad this a.m. as I was shoveling. Do you see how my driveway is shoveled right down to the road? I could have backed out without shoveling. I could have done just where we walk. And there is going to be warm weather coming so I could have left it to melt. But there's that nagging thought that somehow my dad will come by, from Winnipeg, and do a surprise inspection. So I shoveled it....right down to the road.

And I'm still full from our fiesta Mexico party this evening jointly cooked by Grnny and I. She has been co-teaching our Mexico unit. And though officially it's not over until Friday, tonight worked best to have our feast.

Here's K getting the tables out for dinner.

The boys worked with Grnny ahead of time to prepare a puppet show for us about Mexico.
Can you see the little eye peeking out between the chairs in the 1st pic?

They were very proud of their work. And so were we.

They had prepared pinatas last week and were SO excited to get at them. I wish I had taken a picture where you could see the smiles on their faces. Next country unit-India. But not until Monday.

M made a comment yesterday about how today, while the kids were at GrnnySchool, I would have my weekly 'time-off'. Hmm. Really?
I took a picture of my to-do list for today while the kids were gone. Yup, just as he suspected, nothing but free time. Love you babe.

You can tell you are a prairie girl! Like you, I too clear the driveway all the way to the road. I love how you make learning fun for the boys and you tell by their faces. Keep up the great work!
