There is no school today. The temperature is -17…the wind chill -31. Inside the house today, there will be reading aloud (we just finished Ellen Potter’s THE KNEEBONE BOY over breakfast, and wow! What an ending!) There will be hot chocolate and Scrabble and chicken chili and some writing time.
Outside, there is a very, very cold lake. I stepped onto the back deck just long enough to snap a couple photos of the frozen morning.
