Late Additions to Vacation Week programs

Phew!  It’s exciting to have a little snow after such a barren winter, even if I was scared to drive to the grocery store today.  If you’re thinking of sledding, you’ll find the the post here–please add your suggestions.

We managed to fritter the day away even though we remained housebound.  I was dealing with technical difficulties while the girls frolicked outside.  J sewed herself a teddy bear and took a long midday bath while M continued to play outside.  We played Trouble, which, true to its name, caused quite a bit of it when I sent M’s piece home (she’d managed to sweet-talk J into mercy several times).  We made snow ice cream because it’s required in our household for all 4+ inch snowfalls, and we watched Laura kick Nellie’s butt in a mudfight, because on vacation you get to watch the two-part Little Houses.

But enough about us.  Here are some additions to the February week offerings:

At the downtown Schenectady Public Library, they’ll have Captain Jack’s Magic Show at 2:30 pm on Wednesday.  Drop in for pirate fun, they say.

The Albany Art Room will have a clay open studio from 11 am to 2 pm on Friday.  The cost is $7 per artist, plus the cost of clay.  They ask that you let them know if you plan to come.

Hey, if you’re new around here, be sure to check out the pages over to the right–and welcome.

    And there is no game that makes me sorrier for getting it out than the fights provoked in a vicious game of Sorry.

    The Schenectady County Historical Society in the Stockcade did some great workshops this week. They are trying to build the programs that are offered. All historically bases and the museum is very nice. Check out their Facebook and Twitter pages.

  3. I put a couple of these on the calendar with the earlier post–if you get a chance to go to any of them, I’d love to hear how they were.
