We had a great time today taking our usual indoor Winter Story Hour outside into the Adaire schoolyard, because it certainly didn't feel like winter out there today! The amazing Ms. Chris managed to hold the kids' attention reading even amid the frenzy of kids careening all around the playground area ... for a little bit! We had tons of fun and enjoyed the sun.
