Listening to a staff member talk about Winter

Today Joe's class took a virtual field trip to see Winter the dolphin at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The field trip lasted a full hour during which they saw Winter, her dolphin pal Panama, and the staff that works with them. The staff answered questions sent in by the students. The first question asked was submitted by Emma who was included in the field trip because she is Joe's sister! If you want to watch the live feed of Winter click HERE

First snow day

Last week the kids had their first snow day. Emma had placed a spoon under her pillow (an East Lansing custom) and was delighted to wake up and find out that the ritual worked! I went to work and Chris stayed home with the kids. Snow days mean lots of cuddle time with a Calvin.
