Snow Day

After a nice, mild winter, we awoke to a few inches of snow on the ground this morning. So here is our agenda for the day:
We'll start with our usual devotions, prayers, and read-aloud time, and then we'll move into shoveling, sledding, and working at Midwest Food Bank.  A full day of work, fun, and service.  No academics, but we'll make that up another day.
On the way to the sledding hill, this conversation happened:
Sarah: If Trump ever builds that wall, we could build a snow ramp up to it and launch right over it.
Noah: Except I don't think it snows enough down there to do it.  If it was a wall on the Canadian border, that would be a good idea. 

 Sarah quoted Robert Frost as we were walking down this snowy path.  Does that count as school for the day? 

 This beautiful boy was enjoying the food we tossed out for him on the patio.
The poor trees budded weeks ago when it was in the 70s for several days.
 We went straight from the sledding hill to the food bank.  We worked with cornmeal today.
