We have spent the past couple of weeks doing a lot at home. We took New Year's weekend and rearranged a lot of furniture and created more usable space. It was a great way to start off the year.
We swapped out old activities for new ones. The boys were taking some nature classes. They have ceased their desire to take those classes and opted for something more active - karate. We'll be doing a lot of nature based activities in Cub Scouts, yes, you heard it right...Cub Scouts. I've started our own homeschool Cub Scout pack. This ought to be fun!
We finally found an economically right karate studio for the boys. Incidentally, it has a homeschool class smack dab in the middle of the day - not at dinner time. Their previous instructor was really calm and the class was subdued. This new guy...holy cannoli...he's loud and forceful. The boys love it.

While I'm not enjoying the cold, I am enjoying the new opportunities that it brings every year!
