Beth needed a dry-erase board for math class at school. We picked one up tonight. She thinks that they are going to use them to cut down on their paper usage. It kind of reminds me of when the pioneer kids had their personal size chalk boards.
We tried on our jackets tonight. It is going to get cold tomorrow. We have gone out to find new jackets, but the kids need jackets with hoods that are attached, not snapped on or zippered on. We have not been able to find jackets that they like yet. In the middle of winter, when it is really cold, the kids can put up their hood, over their hat, and have that extra layer of warmth. Plus, if the hood is attached, then it won't get lost. It is a bother to find a jacket with an attached hood, but we are always glad that we did.
