Dreaming of SUN!

Well, we are 2/3 of the way through Fall and quickly approaching Winter!
While we have been lucky where I live and had a mild Fall for the most part, we have had several cold snaps and blustery, rainy days.....
I am quickly missing our heat and Sun of the Summer!
The heat energy of the Summer makes me happy! It grows my vegetables, it makes my chickens lay eggs, it makes the trees green and pretty and my ecosystem is good!
Winter makes me crabby, tired and dreaming of Spring!
How do I combat those days in our homeschool? Well, we use Natural Lighting that gives off UV rays to combat the effects of SAD. It helps on those dark, dreary Pacific Northwest days. We get outside whenever we have a few moments of sunshine! And we use this time of year to do things that are inside!
Needless to say, we get a lot of schoolwork done during the long Winter! Science projects abound!
What do you do during the long, dark days of Winter?
Happy Homeschooling!
