she heard her brother crying at the end of his nap and had an idea to cheer him up
these two are becoming good little buddies
the girls "sledding" on our flat yard while Alden and I walked around our corner of the neighborhood. lovely afternoon until Alden fell on his face for the 2nd day in a row. poor nose.
Emily's class spent a lot of the winter studying ancient Egypt. The kids did each researched and wrote simple reports, and did crafts to display as a museum for the 1st and Kindergarten classes to walk through. It was really pretty impressive, and Emily loved it. I was able to volunteer in Emily's class a couple of times during the project weeks, and it was so nice to finally get in and see her world there (despite it being a more chaotic classroom environment than I would like...). I brought the younger two in on museum day, and turned by back on Alden for a minute until Emily's whole class burst out in laughter because he'd climbed up on a table.:)
her name in hieroglyphics?
The weather hasn't cooperated much, but I've loved the few Friday afternoons I could get out with these two!
Adara's last ski lesson day, the hill was solid ice, so they sent out the groomer. The kids were already out there... which didn't look super safe, but it was kind of fun to watch the groomer up close, and it helped the snow a lot!
waiting for her certificate of completion for Sno Puppies :)
relaxing at home after basketball
a few fun nights of laughter with friends..and matching sweaters
and after all winter of asking, we finally took them ice skating! they both had hand me down skates that fit, and actually started to get the hang out if by the end.
