I'm not kidding.
And every time we have a bit of sunshine and a warmish day, I get a little hopeful....only to have those hopes and dreams violently crushed between winter's evil death grip.
Yup. Beke needs some sunshine. ASAP!
We've also had lots of rain the past few weeks. It's been that kind of rain where you start seeing the neighborhood critters lining up two by two. Somebody better be building an ark somewhere!
As I type this I can see the snow flying outside of the living room window. Yikes! It's time to bring in reinforcements.
For us, this comes in the form of some good old-fashioned movie watching. We do have a good collection of favorite movies. And we have a a subscription to a couple of popular streaming services.
But...I am currently obsessed with Youtube. I have been using to to make Josiah watching current event programming. I am always on the look out for tutorial on how to make or create cool things.
Not that I ever get around to it...this homeschooling stuff keeps us busy!
Anyhoo. Did you know that you can find lots of neat old movies on youtube?
