I like the cold. At least for the most part. I don't mind snow (as long as it doesn't affect power and there is no ice!). I love bundling up with blankets and hoodies.
But I'm really missing the sunshine right about now. I don't see much sunshine (or anything else) from my desk at the tax office. The tax thing is slowing down, but it's not over. I need it to be over. I'm also missing my outside walks/jogs. I am ridiculously grateful for my treadmill because it's helped me keep my momentum, but I am soooooo bored with it, lol. I want to see the trees. And the cows. And the donkeys. And the chickens. :)
So what's been up with us? School has been going along. I won't say swimmingly or anything, but well enough. Both of the boys have struggled with some of their courses. But I think that's a good thing honestly. They have basically sailed along all these years and it's good for them to come across lessons/activities that they have to retake, or really focus/concentrate on. They did have an opportunity to break up the online learning last month. February was #FreebieFebruary, so the interwebs were awash with free educational resources. I found some free printable science worksheets, some free United States printables and a crap-ton of other free worksheets/crosswords. Free is always good. :D
As for what else we've been up to, I'll show you...
We had what could have been some beautiful snow, but instead was messy/nasty/power outage causing ice. Bleh.
I got new glasses! Not incredibly noteworthy, but I went with a style that is really out of my norm. Love them so far.
The boys I tried Korean BBQ for the first time. Not only was it a great time with friends, it was really good noms.
Braeden has his first 4-H Cloverleaf DPA competition at Rock Eagle. Bailey was there as a teen leader...they both had a really good time!
|Our group, having some fun together.|
|The rock eagle.|
|Working on his project. Healthy and fun fruit kabobs!|
|Displaying for the judges and tasters.|
|So how did he do? My baby won 2nd place! I was so proud of him, but more importantly, he was SO proud himself!|
Well. That's about it for now. This month, Bailey has his Senior 4-H DPA, he's in a play with his drama class and hopefully, we'll see some of that spring I've been looking for. ;)
Until next time...
