My Little Inuits

I don't know which one of them started it, but the kids are CRAZY for "igloos" this winter. There are 3 of them in the yard and they go outside for at least an hour every day after school to work on them; hours on the weekends!

One day last week, when all of their homework was done and they had an hour before bed, they went out in the dark!

A couple of weeks ago, Frances, who usually HATES going outside during winter, asked if we could go shopping so she could get snowpants and snowboots! Huh?? She is a convert!

They even carved out a cup holder!

Where is Elizabeth, you ask? Having a porky moment - imagine that!

Inside news: Frances had an assignment to make a model of helium for her chemistry class. Naturally she chose to represent it with cake!

I have made 24 tortillas once every week for YEARS. I have never had one like this - what do you think it means???
