Well I did not plan on being off for a week or 10 inches of snow one day and 3 inches the next with it turning to ice on the 3rd day. I had to keep Jack on task as far as school is concerned plus keeping up with the cooking and cleaning , the dog and playing in the snow. Let's just say I am exhausted and so ready to get back to work. We have had fun though. We have played , measured the volume of water in snow , the salt and ice cube string experiment, made snow cream , made snow art (with water , food coloring and squirting guns ), caught snowflakes on dark paper and examined them with the magnifying glass ,boiled water and threw it in 1 degree weather and watched as it turned to ice.
