  20. Do a wax-resistant snow painting
  21. Bake a treat with Sammy
  22. Play 10 board games (Sammy loves to play these games and I need to make more of an effort to play games with him)  (we have played 3 different games, 1 of them several times)
  23. Go on at least 1 field trip to DC 1/27-1/28
  24. Try 1 new thing (activity, food, restaurant)
  25. Have an indoor snowball fight

I haven’t done very well with this list!  One reason for sure is that it has been cold but not much snow.  The snow we did get was powder and you couldn’t really play in it.  We, however, have plans to catch up on a few things on this list while we are taking a break from school this week!
