Flirting with the idea of putting them back in school regardless of what I said HERE.
Nah! I RESOLUTELY REFUSE TO GIVE UP.
Tomorrow a science lesson in certain laws of physics, using the slope beneath the house, makeshift sleds and varying weights (read: more or less children on one sled) may be in order. I shall record the results from a warmer perch in a sunny corner of an upstairs bedroom as I work on my own project. I may just win that war yet ;-)
