It's freezing out! Or at least this east wind is feeling really cold to us. But that doesn't mean we stay inside. We've spruced up our courtyard with some recycled Christmas trees and new sand, so we've got a winter forest to play in. We're enjoying the crispness and clarity of cold weather. As one child said, "You can hear better when it's this cold!" Of course those little ears need to be kept warm, so please send appropriate outdoor clothes to school for your child.
