Today has been a great day! Yesterday we met some fellow unschoolers; Connie and her daughter, Hannah. We spent the afternoon at their house and were so inspired. Just a great kid-friendly, fun, creative house with fun, creative people living in it, which is exactly what I needed to get my head out of the sand. They have a swing, trapeze, and climbing rope right in the middle of the living room! So guess what we are building this week? You got it! A swing, trapeze, and climbing rope!
We woke up this morning to a little bit of snow on the ground. Winter is officially here! I was surprised at how well I handled it. It actually felt very refreshing. It always makes the air smell and feel really clean. Connie and Hannah came over to our house this afternoon and the girls had a blast. Lots and lots of noise filled our home today!! Tonight we had our puppy class and then we came home and had a snowball fight. All that running and cold air burns the lungs I tell ya but it was fun!! We came in and made homemade hot chocolate and now the kids are watching Smallville (one of their favs).
We ordered, and received, some woodworking books and are going to get started on some projects tomorrow. We also have a sewing project book on the way so we will have plenty to do over the next couple of weeks. Martin almost has Kevin's room and craft area done; we just have to get it mud and taped. It will be so nice to have a craft area that we can leave messes out in. We have lots of projects in mind but all our project stuff is still in boxes waiting for that area to get completed. My sister, Ren, just unpacked their last boxes, after one year of living in Jonesborough so I shouldn't feel so bad :) .
