Well, at least it brings a little snow.
A look back at our week:
From Instagram: I have been staying up way too late this week reading Hannah Coulter. (Have you read it?) Such a good book--so good that I've nearly burned through a box of tissues and I can't stop telling my kids that they're some of my most favorite people. The lack of sleep + deeply contemplative thoughts pair well with chocolate.
These two love games.
A drop-everything-and-run-outside-to-see-it sunset. (I was painting doors and trim.)
The first Snow Day this school year. Maybe we got 3 inches? And most of it melted by the afternoon. But they had so much fun playing while it was snowing.
(Watching the snow fall with a cup of hot chocolate.)
(Those rafts are getting a lot of use.)
In the afternoon we made some black glue Valentine's art.
After M and I went shopping to restock her shirt supply (due to non-stop growing), we took them ice-skating for the first time. They keep asking to go back.
After a beautifully long winter nap, we went on a hike.
(Listening to the sound of rocks skidding across a frozen lake.)
(Looking for sticks to play a game of "Pooh sticks.")
