The girls were anticipating snow up there in northern Michigan and guess what? They got their wish. Good thing this mom was prepared. I packed up all their snow gear from snow pants to scarves. They definitely enjoyed the winter weather up there with no regrets. Now, for those of you who know me really well, you know that the snow and the cold are not my cup of tea, ugh. But, I do enjoy watching my girls play in the snow as I reminisce of the days my brother and I used to play in the snow. Our favorite past time is sledding! It was such a blast.
Though we didn't go sledding we did build a snowman, okay, "snow-girl" and a mean snow fort. It literally snowed every day that we were present. There was already a good amount of snow on the ground when we got there. It was result of a huge snow storm that took place a month ago. Because it started melting it refroze and left a natural ice rink. Though we didn't pack our ice skates, we did some boot skating, haha! So fun and yet creative, another fun past time. They put on a little show, it was so stinkin cute!
Like everything else, all good things must come to an end right? We were so not ready to come home. We are already planning our next northern adventure. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I did bring learning activities and worksheets. We did take a break from curriculum but I didn't want to leave homeschooling behind completely, you know what I mean?
Anyways, like I said before we are ready to plan our next northern adventure. We stay in my in-laws cabin and it's always such a blast.
If you are a homeschooling family have you ever taken your "homeschooling" on a trip? Would love to hear about your adventures.
Blessed to be a wife and a mom
