We've been busy doing school too. The kids were excited when we did a little bit of reorganization in the classroom. (pictures coming later) I'm hoping this will help my older two get through their work quicker, with less chatting and checking out each other's work. We also went through some school work files. I'm always amazed when we look back over their work from the beginning of the year at how far they've come in such a short period of time. K-girl is really coming along in her reading and has even been reading some 2nd grade reading books.
Our winter weather had finally arrived and the kids are having lots of fun shoveling the driveway (and the yard) to make snow jumps, forts and mazes. Last year we had already had a couple of blizzards by this time and were buried in snow, so the 4-6 inches that we have on the ground has been just enough to play in. The temperatures haven't been so bad this winter either, we've been enjoying many days of highs in the 30s. Last year it seemed that many of our days were highs in the negatives and it was
to cold to play outside.
Sled jump and snow angels in the front yard. They scooped half of our yard to get this snow pile.
The neighbor girl had a pool party and of course my kids were in the hot tub most of the time.
Shawn, K-sis and K-baby sledding. Thank God for Daddy who loves to pull, pull and pull the sleds!
We even managed to go ice skating, Shawn did the taxes and some 529 funds for the kids and I helped our small group host a marriage seminar at church (we were in charge of all the food for about 120 people).
