Snow Days & Camp Night | St. Patricks Day | Parents Performances

Hope you survived the snow days okay.

Confession: I couldn't get much work done working from home; I tried to get kid to do some homework, clean up their rooms, play some games without getting into fights, and generally stay off the screens.

Meanwhile my husband was happily holed up in his room working. And came out only for lunch or to tell the kids, "Hey let's take a break and play some videogames!"

Someone actually did a study of families that found "a father in a room by himself was the person-space configuration observed most frequently." Right, while the mom's busy with the kids. I read about that study in an article aptly titled You will hate your husband after your kid is born. ;-)

To be fair, my husband did make pasta for lunch for us. And after the kids went to sleep I was able to catch up a bit on work. And we all pitched in to shovel snow, all 3 times! Quit a bit of work but we all had fun.

Speaking of shoveling, I heard from a mom that her 3rd grader made $130 shoveling snow for the neighbors!

Apparently there's more snow coming next week. Sigh I need to start planning a better way now, like train my son to go out and shovel. What are your tips for snow days?

On to summer camps: I got only 3 responses on the summer camp survey. I'm hoping that means everyone's all set with summer plans?

Last night was the Cambridge Summer Camp Info Night. Lots of families came despite the snow. We had a table to tell folks about the Chinese Summer School for two weeks at the end of the summer. We're still trying to nail down a venue. If you go to a church and can ask about space rental for the last two weeks of summer, I'd be very grateful.

This weekend we have a couple of performances with some local parents! Take your pick between a modernized Shakespear Play and a family opera. And remember to wear green for St. Patrick's Day this Saturday.
