We have had sooo much fun on our Christmas trip. We have spent lots, and lots of time outside, and we have been exploring, both indoors and out. The kids are getting quite a kick out of this Smart Globe my aunt sent us. It talks and has games, and even updates over the web so all the data isn't out of date the moment there's an election somewhere on the planet.
And there have been robotics and programming, train engineering, cleaning house (ah, how different all my children are!), stop-motion movie research, boat-camping(!), biking, biking, biking, and plenty of archery.
