Welcome, Winter

What a way to ease back into the school routine: Two snow-days followed by a trip into the Manitoba Museum. We closed the week with a ski/hike down the trail and some delicious hot-cocoa.  Here are some highlights from the first week back...
Sunrise on the North Pole? Or is it 236? Either way it was stunning.

Tom shows two older students out how animals keep warm in winter: something we talked about at school and got to see here at the museum.

Off we go!

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says 'Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.'" 
-Lewis Carroll
