One of the kids' favorite activities is playing Webkinz on the computer together. It's a collaborative effort in this household. I pull over a couple of barstools so each one can participate.
Here is the reader! Colin got through the first Harry Potter book in 4 days. He's been reading voraciously over his break. The school wants me to keep track of how much he's read and what books. How can I even keep up? This kid has logged dozens of hours!
Too sweet! Micah and Mira.
Ella is being a big helper, setting the dinner table. She is wearing a little German dress I wore as a little girl. It's meant to be worn with a blouse underneath (which she did wear to church on Sunday). I loved seeing her in it!
I took the kids sledding yesterday. They've been begging to go for some time. Since we got some more snowfall and it was a perfect day. There's a great little hill not far from our house. In the past, taking the kids sledding has been quite a chore for Mom and Dad. A lot of dragging the sled back up the hill for people, carrying little ones around and such. But this time, the boys were completely self-sufficient! They had an absolute ball. Here's Micah finishing up his ride.
Colin was being creative going down backwards, riding it like a snowboard...
I tried to get one of the 4 kids together, but Ella was too busy having fun. There she is on the side, going down on her belly.
