Professionals in Snow-time!

First time snow is pretty exciting stuff for a bunch of Floridians! So far our favorite adventure in Kentucky has been learning to snowboard and sledding in the snow. Even mom had to give it a try (and have the bruises to prove it).
We have spent every possible moment outside sliding down the hills. Fortunately for us, hills are readily available in and around the Louisville area.
These pictures were taken in our own neighborhood.
It isn't all fun and games though, as a homeschooling family, we were able to use the experience for some hands on learning about how temperature affects water and how liquids form solids & visa-versa. We have also learned a lot about the weather during this time and have been closely studying the clouds and sky.
Another very pleasant discovery has been noticing the uniqueness of each individual snowflake. What an amazing and beuatiful world we live in!
