Brrrrr! We really felt winter last week.
Getting little men out of bed (oh and me too) was a challenge.
Yes, we have a heater we could use but have you seen the price of electricity?!
Nope, put on extra clothes and rug up I say.
And so my boys do…well the skinny little critters have to. They have very little fat to insulate them. Me…I’m plenty warm.
So when it was really cold last week
(rest assured it doesn’t really get cold where we live – our maximums were between 15 and 18 degrees Celsius)
I let the boys snuggle under a blanket to do their bookwork
…after some freshly baked nice warm muffins for breakfast of course.
So that’s yet another benefit of homeschooling –
You can bring your blanket to school and you don’t have to go out into the cold to get their either…and neither does Mummy!
(My sympathies to my neighbour who, from my nice warm bed, I could hear pleading with her children to hurry up and get into the car before they were late for school. Dear neighbour, feel free to come over and inquire about homeschooling.)
