I'm not sure if any Americans celebrate this holiday, but up in Canada yesterday was Family Day!
Since the -30 weather kindly left, we bundled up for a day of skiing and snowboarding, but having five in the family means that sometimes someone has to bend a bit. We are skiing again with the school tonight too, so my youngest was not overjoyed with the choice of activity.
What to do? We'd already spent much of this bitter weekend indoors, so we packed up the Vex Robotics Kit he got for Christmas, and plunked him in the chalet with a lunch tray. My husband and I took turns skiing with two kids or building, and maybe writing a plan for a blog post in my Notebook, with William.
It was a great day with lots of breaks, fries, hot chocolate and laughs. That robot spider, after four hours? Still not done!
