I’m a man, and not a father, but I really find it intriguing reading about mom’s stuff. The way you write is cool. Keep it up :)

Your blog post is really an interesting read. Even though I’m not a mother nor a wife yet, I somehow continued to read until the last sentence.

I have to agree with you that during the pioneer days people had a lot of things to do and needed to attend this and that. There’s just so much to do!

You know, it’s nice that you let your kids experience Pioneer day because not only did it let them become responsible and productive kids (lots of kids have a hard time understanding pioneer work) but it also made them realize when to just step back from the modern world and relax.

Everyone likes to snow days mostly kids. These days are very enjoyable for our kids. When the kids came in from the snow they went straight to the bath, and got into their night clothes. After setting the table, we sat down for our evening meal. So its very enjoyable season.

How fun! We had recent ice storms here in Dallas, TX and we did similar stuff. We didn’t call it “Pioneer day”, but we certainly did things without power since there were rolling black outs going on. We knitted, sewed by hand, and worked on some needlework. It was a lot of fun. Then that night we read by candle light. I see moments like these as an excellent opportunity for some adventures with the children.

Thats an interesting idea. It’s hard to keep kids occupied when stuck in the house.

What a fantastic idea! I’m going to steal it for my own 10 year old the next time she complains she is “bored”. Sounds like a great learning lesson and a lot of fun!

We had our first Chicago snow storm this weekend which meant digging out my car, an unpleasant drive to work and basically feeling soggy all morning. But I am determined to maintain a romanticized winter wonderland mentality this year. To stay optimistic, I’m focusing on the upside of snow.

Yes, good share man, I love this site for your job :)

Great idea! I really like it because we lose power when it snows so everyone in my house starts going crazy without electronics, it’d be nice to spend time doing something other than spending the last hour of battery life figuring out where we can go to recharge our devices!

Nice post! Pioneering sounds fun, I should totally try to do that with my family. Since it’s winter there, you should totally get Gutter Helmet gutter guards, that way, you can save up on some money and you never have to clean your gutters again. I know frozen gutters can be a pain. It’ll be safer for you too, no more climbing up ladders in the snow.

Snow is fun for everyone except the British. Flights get canceled, roads get blocked and all. You know the rest….

This is very good activity. Children like to play with snow. We should provide such activities and occasions to our kids. good article.

This is so sweet. I’m going to try it with the kids I care for. Thanks for sharing.
