The cool basement is great when we restart lessons in August, but come January it's too nippy so we take things back to the dining table or the living room couch (or sprawl on the floor). Science experiments often happen in the kitchen where we have access to higher counters and the sink for clean up.
Other days, its just too nice to stay indoors. Schnickelfritz and I read in the porch swing. Sometimes he does his math homework by jumping up and down the steps to the deck.
