Winter excercise...

Hello friends and family from us all here at "Scoil Dai" ! Well , despite the winter chill , everyone has to excercise so we wrapped up well and headed to the local playground...we were the only ones there ! As you can see the kids were fine running around, but the teacher and principle had to cuddle up to keep warm ;0)
Also Daisy is very busy "posting" , well everything this weather , we had to nip it in the bud when we found some of our cards in the oven so we made her a "postbox" , very simple just a cereal box with a slot cut in it , makes for hours of fun , so she`s happily drawing and writing "letters" to post !
Also we`ve started reading a family favourite, reading around the fire , ( a chapter a night after dinner) , of "The night before Christmas" by Alice Taylor , of an Irish country childhood Christmas from days past...
and weve been cutting out paper snowflakes , this is Aideens speciality she has a great eye for patterns ! And of course the paper chains made from old magazines :0)
Today we had a great surprise in t`he post , lots of lovley educational pressies from dear Papa gene and Daisy Lila in the USA , they are the girls adopted grandparents and also sent lovley material for a wall-hanging for me ! (THANKS GUYS xx)
So , its busy but fun here in "scoil Dai" with the usual visits to the library and walks around the town to see the wonderful colours of he winter skies and the sillouttes of the branches...
hope you are all enjoying the winter wonderland wherever you are , till next time ...
