The cold doesn't stop the children from going outside, especially when they've been waiting so long to play on the pond. We have a small pond in our backyard that freezes over. They would like to use it as a skating rink, but it's not big or smooth. We do have an arena about three miles from us so I'd like to try to utilize that more this year. We had plans to go one more time last year, but the birth of our baby prevented that from happening. Today's been quite calm, especially with the phone not ringing.
The kids made forts in the bedrooms today and also have the Legos out for playing.
