Some kids get Snow Days, but that doesn't make much sense for a homeschooling family - we're home snug anyway so we might as well get some learning done. :)
But ... a SUN day hasn't come around in a while in our neck of the woods. And we couldn't possibly waste it sitting inside, no matter what fabulous books and studies we are currently engaged in.
I canceled normal school and we headed out!
Nature guides in hand, we saw a northern harrier and a great blue heron up close and personal, spotted what we think was an egret off in the distance, heard the loud geese and watched the ducks dive. We also found a mass of garter snakes enjoying the sun as much as we were!
Plenty of time to catch back up on the book stuff tomorrow. :)
