As I mentioned briefly in the last post, we missed the snow by a few days. It was actually much warmer in Boone than I was anticipating (50s).
When we woke up on Friday, the kids really didn't want to go anywhere. They wanted to ride bikes and play outside for a while at the house. They were perfectly content to make their own fun.
So we let them.
Rea and I went exploring. One of her school assignments was to observe the plant life around the house. She then had to select two, draw a picture of them, and write sentences contrasting their differences.
The kiddos each got a Lego set from Little Aunt Debbie and Uncle Percy. That bought us all a few hours of quiet Stus. Plus, we brought a ream of paper from home for Buddy.
And thus ends day 2. Tomorrow we are off to find some snow, any snow.
