Playing Outdoors in the Winter

The girls enjoy playing outdoors now that there's more snow on the ground. They can lose track of time as they make snow angels, build snow forts, and shovel paths through the backyard.

The dogs also spend time outside with the girls, and they explore the nature trail together. It's fun for the girls and dogs to find the tracks in the snow left by rabbits, pheasants, birds, and other wildlife.

So many opportunities for outdoor learning and exercise - two elements of homeschooling that complement what the girls are learning indoors.
