Dave talked to the principal and figured out the procedure to request our kids to stay inside when we feel it's too cold for them to be out. That being said, when it was -17 Thursday morning as they were getting ready for school, Dave said they were going to stay home until it warmed up a bit more.
In the end this was a long week of cold outside and cabin crazy inside. The kids had a half day on Friday, no school Monday and Tuesday and Papa mandated half day on Thursday, adding in the random kids who stayed home on the days when there was school due to a cold that seems to making rounds in our house. It's been too cold to go outside or go anywhere so we've all been inside. What do you do with ten kids stuck inside for days on end??? All I can say is I am glad we allowed the kids to move into the basement so everyone wasn't on top of each other. Here are some pics of our unplanned vacation days!
How we stayed warm!
Perfect for napping!
Plenty of time to catch up on laundry!
Nothing like playing with Legos!
Hanging out in the big kid's apartment!
Of course the dogs were inside the whole time too!!
