I'm not going to mince words: I dislike extreme cold as much as I dislike extreme heat.
maybe I was meant to be a Buddhist because of my extreme views of all things in moderation. (I think the "extreme" part and my belief in Jesus Christ just canceled out that idea) ;-)
I digress. It's been cold. Too cold to go outside and play for hours like we were doing less than a month ago. Cooped up in the house.
Here's what we did today:
the kids went to their rooms, emptied out their toy buckets and played in them for HOURS. seriously. well, it was only about an hour and a half.
They also insisted on blankets. to cover their heads, of course.
those toy buckets: $3 each at Walmart this summer. We got 3. fabulous investment.
blocks in the window.
Daughter insisted that these blocks didn't want to be a part of the tower. They just wanted to watch.
