February is always our worst month for winter weather. Last week the kids were off several days because of extremely cold temperatures or snow covered roads. Friday was another day off school for Megan, my daughter. Since it was too cold to go outside in the snow we decided to make origami. I saw on Sylvia's lovely blog Cosiness a link on how to make origami love birds (you can visit her blog here). Sylvia's love birds were so pretty and Megan loves birds, so I thought it would be a fun activity. We did have a lot of fun making the love birds and I also made the banner above. Megan googled origami and our love birds then had samurai hats to wear... as well as everyone else in the house.
The sky was clear and blue yesterday which means cold temperatures to come. Sure enough it was -9° F actual temperature when Megan went to the bus stop this morning. They couldn't have a 2 hour delay because they are starting their standardized testing today. I asked if she had enough No. 2 lead pencils for the test, she said she didn't need them. She needed to bring her ear 'buds' instead because they are taking the test on a computer. How things change...
Today I am joining Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday and the class Be Still. The assignment in Be Still was to ... add a little hanging something. I added a banner I created on Megan's snow day and also the texture sybil.
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great week and stay warm!
