Weekly Wrap Up - After the Blizzard

Well the powers that be were a bit off on their predictions for our snow accumulations.  They'd given us estimates of 30+ inches, but we ended up with just a little over 18 in our city.   The winds were pretty intense and there was some drifting issues.  Thankfully we didn't lose our electricity, but we have a back up plan (wood stove) at all time anyway.

Here are a few photos from our little "snowmageddon".    The bottom photo is our van...buried.

 
 


Enjoying a good blizzard takes a little preparation. We hit the library early for books, got lots of snack foods (homemade nachos, yum) and a new game too review.   Fun stuff I tell ya!
All activities for Friday, Saturday and Sunday were cancelled.   Monday and Tuesday also saw ballet cancelled (the instructors are still snowed in) and piano and 4-H were cancelled too.   Let me tell you folks, having 5 straight days of being home in the evenings with nowhere to rush to has been A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! 

Academics have still been going on undisturbed.   We are officially past the half way mark in our school year in all subjects.   If I'm judging it right we should be finished by mid May.   Thus far I've determined that the biggest issue academically has been science, so be expecting to see changes there for next year.

I've got some great product reviews in the pipeline.  One of our favorites, that I can't wait to share with you is this:

Linking up with the Weekly Wrap Up and Collage Friday.

  2. Your house looks as buried under by snow as mine! Wasn't it fun, though. We love posts about homeschooling at our Literacy Musing Mondays Linkup http://www.foreverjoyful.net/?p=782
