You know you live in Alaska and homeschool when...

...your son does an exercise circut in your family room, during school, in his shorts when it is -20to -30.

...after he wrote his name and drew a picture.

...your week is busy and the only menu you can eek out is a quite scrawl on the back of last week's menu.
...this one has nothing to do with Alaska but my jeans are a little long so they are rolled up while I am working at home. The length isn't too horrible with shoes on but maybe these need hemmed. 

...when you woke up and the temperature was -44 and you are glad when you see the temperature warmed up to -22 so homeschool ice skating isn't cancelled. 

Off to the rink for us. Good afternoon!


  1. That is so cold. You must keep your house pretty warm for him to be running around in shorts. :)

  2. You house seems so cozy despite the bitter cold. Your construction methods must be better than down here. And what about your furnaces? Are they better quality? At -15 we struggled to keep the house in the mid 60's. Tell us more about how you keep your home comfortable!
