One of the great advantages of homeschooling is that you can take short breaks whenever you like, for whatever purpose you like. After our "major weather event" of yesterday and today, I decided to give Julia an hour to go sledding down our hill. Here she is, coming back, with Sandy in tow:
I know you've probably seen my fireplace as much as you want to, but I was so excited to find a new setting on my camera that I hadn't noticed -- one for very low light conditions!

I took both of yesterday's fireside shots with it too.
