The Big Freeze of 2014

Well, the first two days of school after Christmas break have been called off due to snow and very cold temps.  The lowest temp we recorded today here at the house was -16 with a wind chill of -37. BRRRR...

The three younger girls, however, aren't getting so lucky!  We had such a light schedule 2-3 weeks before Christmas that we are starting tomorrow anyway.  And we're not even starting until 10:00am. 

The snow is very pretty, but it is terribly cold.  The kids took cups with hot water out on the patio and threw the water up into the air.  I don't know what you call what happened, but no water hit the ground - it looked like steam.  It was cool.

The younger girls went outside the day before these cold temps hit and built a snowman whom they named Olaf II.  (The snow was really coming down.)

 They'll be on that slide again least that's what I keep telling myself :)
