December Daily: I have decided to do the December Daily again where I will blog about every day in December as well as compile a scrapbook for my children to read in the years to come. At first I thought I would never do it again, but it was so loved by my children that I had to repeat this fun activity. How cool will this be in years to come to look back year after year what we did in December. So here it goes......
December 1st-The Sandbox.
Today was my second day on the job as a Middle School Secretary. While I am only there part time it is still a little bit of an adjustment for Q. So, I let him know that we would do something cool together when my day as secretary was done. The first thing he said when we got in the van to head home was "Yeah I get to do sum-ping wis Mama" What did he want to do?.....play in the sandbox! I know what your thinking, the sandbox in December? It was in the lower 50's today which is uncharacteristic for Wisconsin so it allowed us a little spring time fun in the beginning of what is usually a clod and blustery time.We enjoyed our 20 minutes in the sand and then headed into the house for some hot cocoa. (What a contrast to my entry exactly one year ago! It was our first snow fall that year and it was a good one. We had enough snow to play in it. So, in one year we went from playing with white fluffy snow to playing with heavy white sand)
Kids Update: They are doing much better after close to 2 weeks of the "piggy". I learned a lot about the Wii, Nintendo DS, various board games, Webkins and many books. I guess you could say we made the best of our time stuck in the house.
