Sometimes I need a little push!

A few weeks ago we had unexpected snowstorm that pretty much caught everyone off guard. We had a jammed packed day planned...but it was kind of nice having an unexpected day home instead. I do not like driving in snow at all. So if I really do not have to be anywhere...then we are home!

At lunch Sean, my lovely husband, said that I should take the kids to the hill to go sledding. Um...hello...I do not drive in snow. He said I would be fine and they would have fun. Plus everyone else was in school, so we would have first dibs at all of the fresh snow. So the risk taker that I am...(not) we slowly ventured out to the one hill in town...not joking. It is where the rubble of a tornado back in the 70's was piled. I had never been, so I had no clue where to park. We ended up parking in the wrong lot...quiet far from the hill. The kids and I were beat and windblown by the time we actually made it to the hill. Hats were flying off, gloves were being lost, I ended up carrying all of the sleds. It was so windy! But in the end 3 out of 4 kids had fun! Easton checked out earlier than the others. I tried to take lots of pictures but with the wind and was tricky!

Our trek to the hill!
Easton chose the small hill
I had to bribe them to leave...

A few fun happenings:)

Yesterday I mentioned that I hadn't blogged in a while...I am vowing to do better:). I know my mom counts on it...

We have been pretty busy with activities. Soccer starts up soon for the Spring. Two littles will be playing. Then the other two will be playing t-ball and softball. Summer is already in full swing....only joking. But doesn't it seem like once summer events are being announcement schedules fill up fast! Looking forward to the summer...I am so done witht his cruddy winter weather!

We are part of two different homeschool groups so that keeps us pretty busy. Even if we are not taking part in a structured activity it is always nice to have friends around during the day to do things with.

This past week we went bowling with friends. So much fun! The kids hadn't been in a while!

We went the circus on Tuesday afternoon with some of the same friends. My kids just love the circus. It is nice that they change the acts up from year to year.

And we have just been plain busy with school and various classes that the kids take on the side like Art and Cooking.

Some sketches from Art class

Love our little life with these little munckins!

Valentine's Day 2015!

I am a bit behind with blogging. I used to blog a few times every is my easy way of scrapbooking! I would love to get back to doing that...believe you me, I have a lot to write about and lots of pics waiting to share, but it is getting harder and harder to carve out a time to blog. Mornings are filled with school and afternoons are filled with errand running, working out, napping, my American girl doll business, and just getting caught up.

A few weeks ago our FOCUS homeschooling group held a Valentine's party! In all over 50 kids attended and it was a fun time had by all!

We played games!

All of the kids made Valentine boxes for the Valentine exchange!

The kids made Valentines for their dad's and we ate yummy treats!

A friend and I put together a whole bunch of photo booth props and had a little booth set up.

It was a such a fun time! Can't wait to see what next year holds!
