We LOVE sunny and mild winter days!
It was the perfect day to enjoy the last
homeschool ski day!
They have so much fun skiing and snowboarding!
Twelve kiddos went and next year Mary is going to join them!
She is more confident now, after learning to ice skate!
Through HopeKids we were able to go tubing at Wild Mountain!
It was another beautiful day to be outside!
Madeline and Jenny
We drove over an hour to get here
and it was well worth the drive!
The also have skiing at Wild Mountain but today we went tubing!
Anna and Ellie
Mary helped Grace with her tube!
They are besties!
Joe and Luke with Grace in the background!
Sam, Abby and Ben-
I made them stand still for a quick photo op!
It was a super fun afternoon!
Ava and Jake running to get another turn!
Mia was able to get off work early so she could go with us!
That dark blob heading down the tubing lane
are all of our kiddos hanging onto each other!
It was quite a sight to see!
We just happened to see these two eagles hanging out near their nest!
They are so breathtakingly majestic!
The five younger kids go to
Baker Nature Center once a month!
I volunteered with Grace and Mary's group!
We worked on fire starting!
It was really fun and much harder than I thought it would be!
Our kiddos got extra credit this year for celebrating
"Pi Day" 3.14
And they just so happen to LOVE pie!
he was finished!
We made apple and blueberry pies!
We go to the library every week!
And this time we returned 6 bags filled with books!
Each bag was as big as these two!
By the time I decided to take the pic,
the others were already in the return bin!
And yes, it does seem like the younger kids get stuck
carrying most of the heavy books...
HopeKids had an in person, inside event!
We went to the Disney movie "Raya and the Last Dragon"!
It felt soooo good doing something normal!
We had popcorn and icee's at 9:00am!
Spring has arrived in MN!
We took a 6 mile walk!
Wow did that feel great!
Belle, our GoldenDoodle did so great!
Our other dogs would have sat down part way around the lake...
And how do we know that?
Because that's what they did the last time they went with us!
Games in the yard!
Pickle in the middle, keep away or what ever they think of next!
Happy St Paddy's Day!
It was also Homeschool Coop day
so they celebrated in green!
I can't believe that March is almost over!
It's all going by so fast!
We are excited for warmer spring temps!
