It was the first big snowstorm of the season so busses were cancelled due to snow. We had very long recess to start off our school day. Michael isn't quite sure what to make of it all. He doesn't seem to mind except for his mittens which he constantly removes. Elizabeth doesn't find it terribly amusing to keep putting them back on so he ended up coming in early.
In addition to regular schoolwork the kids got to observe the excitement of the last three windows in our house being replaced.
In the afternoon we went crosscountry skiing! Since it was our first time we took the advice of the guy at the ski show to go to our local park and get used to the skis before trying a trail. The kids were quite excited to discover the park has a little hill we never noticed before so we got to practice going up and down short hills as well as skiing around the flat part.
