I know it's a lot worse in the Midwest, but 0ºF/-18ºC is an all time low for our house.

A happy convergence of weather conditions left us with a small frozen pond in our yard last week. The kids took advantage, and made it their skating rink. (This stone, fortunately, was on the edge.)

From my 4th grader's math homework. Parents tend to trash current math teaching methods, but showing how multiplication works through "partitioning rectangles" is pretty nifty. All I remember is lining up numbers in columns and following computational rules.

Fall is here. The first frost was this week, but life (and color) hangs on in the garden.

These feathers appear to be the remnants of a male northern flicker woodpecker.

For some reason, I haven't been persuaded to buy this.
