"When the weather fails you,
just change your plans!" (A wise proverb from a South Carolina philosopher! :-) Today was supposed to be warmer, but when it dipped to 27 last night. . .I had a feeling we would not be going to this zoo today with some friends. I knew the boys were disappointed (Why did I say anything to them in the first place?!), and I really was not in the mood to plan a school day. Instead we had a "Fun Day" at school complete with an educational movie about pioneers,
cookie baking,
and games.
In the end, it was a great school day for the boys, and as a South Carolina philosopher once said, "When parents interact positively with their kids, it makes just about anything exciting."

Sorry your plans didn't work out, but it looked like you had a fun day after all!

There are two BIG smiles behind those cookies! (And Daddy probably smiled when he saw them, too!) How blessed are the little boys with a Mommy who figures out how to turn disappointment into something fun -- and educational! -- Much love to all of you!

Looks like lots of fun! There's more to learning than sticking a nose in a book all the time! Your boys are learning lots of different things.

And who would that South Carolina philosopher be?!

The SC philosopher is nothing but a misplaced Yank! :-)
