also played a game of Settlers of Cattan. it was a very long drawn out game in which pete and teshome quit and the rest of us tied at 7 points before calling it quits to eat. in the evening we watched Little Women (the boys pretended to be suffering as they watched).
now pete and his sore back are off to work. normally when schools have snow days we just press on with our school work. i've decided to surprise the kids with an "almost" snow day. peter's monday science class has been cancelled so the only schoolwork i'm requiring is a bit of reading for tapestry of grace. the rest of their to do list includes playing in the snow and drinking hot chocolate. i'm planning to cook a couple of chickens, make soup, and knit. if i can find my snow boots maybe i'll get out and play with my camera in the snow.
