It is Sunday. I usually don't blog on Sunday, but we stayed home from church today to recoop a bit. I was gone all day yesterday...from 7:30am-8:30pm. Not used to that...I was drained. Sean was out of town 3 days last week and is set to have a crazy busy week with more traveling...so we needed a veg day.
This blog post is another random blog post with what has been going on with our little family. Enjoy!
~~A few Sunday's ago I took the girls to a University of Nebraska gymnastics meet. They are serious gymnasts, but they do take classes at the Y and enjoy them. I thought this would be a fun little event and it was. We met a friend there and the girls had a good time seeing how many gymnasts would wave to them.
After wards the girls met a few of the gymnasts. These girls' were twins!
someone left a little trickle of water on in one of our bathroom sinks.
He is drinking the water....
Catching it with his paw....
and then licking it off of his paw.
~~We had a few firsts over the past few months!
Sean skied for the first time in the great mountains of Iowa!! Well ok...bluffs, but we will just say they were big mountains in regards to the flatlands of Iowa.
Our first lesson was on the coldest night of the year. I had friends texting me and sending me e-mails saying...are you crazy? Yes. Do you have any idea what the temp is going to be? Yeppers...we did and we were prepared. We bundled up and we were not cold at all. The other gals in my class...not so much. There was even a news story on one of the local stations about that very day how many braved the cold. Funny.
We took another lesson just last weekend and we feel we are good to go for next weekend when we hit the real (bunny) slopes of Vail, Colorado!
~~Another first for me was learning how to shoot a gun. I was a little nervous to learn, but it wasn't as hard as I had anticipated. I can't wait until our entire family learns how to shoot to we can do things together. Patience...I know. I took a conceal and carry class yesterday and passed...woohoo! Now lots of paper work to file with the State Patrol and after they process the paperwork I can legally carry a gun!
Easton caught a pic of me practicing at home.
~~We got 4 inches of snow last week and we are gearing up to get a few more inches this week. I took the kids to play out in the snow for around 20 minutes or so. They don't last long. I need to buy better gloves. The ones I got for this year, don't stay on, so then the put their cotton ones on and they get all wet. So 20 minutes....but they had fun. I believe it took me an hour or so to gather everything and get everyone dressed. Oh well.
I hope everyone had a great weekend!!
