This is the first time Elijah wanted to go out and play in the snow. He stayed out for over an hour and I used that time to tape my bathroom in anticipation of painting it on Saturday.
Later in the day Elijah was fortunate enough to go out again with Daddy on the tractor to move a tree that fell across the drive-way. A tractor ride ranks right at the top of Elijah's favorite thing to do, so it was perfect event for a 1/2 birthday!
As mentioned, we started school after lunch. Tori's new Math U See came in the mail yesterday, so we got to start on it. I was doing Saxon 1st grade with her, but she wasn't following numbers over 10 too well, so we backed up to work through Math U See's Primer book. At this point, I really love Math U See; it definately was the first thing that really worked for Ben. I have spent a small fortune on this curriculum the last two years, but we have to learn math one way or another. Thankfully most of it is non-consumable and can be used for multiple children and multiple children I do have!
