January Activities

We've been keeping quite busy in between snow storms. In keeping with the cold weather, we got with our homeschool group for ice skating.

He's quite determined.

Pooh did a great job this time. He stayed out on the ice the whole time. (before he would sneak into the warm food area where the video games are) Also, despite falling a few times, he got back up and kept on going. And stayed cheerful!

Next up is Discovery Place in Charlotte, NC. It is usually a great place (well, it still is somewhat) but this time over half of it was closed off for renovations. We didn't know that until we got there. However, the boys still had a grande time!

Tigger enjoyed the building table. Lots of little kids in those areas.

He had a meltdown once because his creation was destroyed by others but he managed to regain his control and try again. I was very proud of him!

This is a wind table. The boats are on wheels and the kids can change the direction of the wind and the sails to see how things move differently with the changes.

This table was mostly surrounded by boys and they had fun racing those boats.

More wind!!! It's a hurricane tube. It replicates the wind forces of a Category 1 Hurricane. The wind speed reached 78 miles an hour.

It's messing up my hair! LOL Bad wind!
In addition to these events, we've been working on our play for drama, doing our best to keep up with school work and generally enjoying the bursts of winter weather. I can't wait for some spring temps though!

What a fun day! My boys just got skates this year, and it's been lots of fun. :)

What a fantastic museum - I love the pics of the hurricane tube. Wish we had one in Minneapolis.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've enjoyed checking out yours too!
