Snow Days

Snow. It's pretty for about two hours. Two weeks, not so much. Certainly not in our part of the world where just a little snow shuts down cities and schools. Make it over a foot, and the whole state shuts down. We were out of school for a whole week. The walls started to close in. We had to be creative, since all the kids EVER want to do is have a screen ... movies ... iPads ... PBSKids ...

We managed to limit screen time to a few hours a day, mixing in some old favorites ... board games ... coloring ... Play-Doh ...

Sawyer loves his Play-Doh ...




 Xander loves his crayons (okay, markers) ...

 Connor loves his board games (though not when Daddy wins) ...

 Sawyer does not love being trapped inside (even with all those toys in his room) ...

And Bruno loves his snow!
