All the stuff.

We had field trips and snow days and 60 degree weather these past weeks.

I got to transport these two cuties to the university planetarium. Teagan is such a sweet little friend to Ella.
 And these three are pretty awesome too. We had a great time learning about planets, stars and the Milky Way.

I was thrilled to be able to help out and join in the fun even though the rain was falling in buckets as we made the long walk across the university campus. We. Were. Drenched.

At some point during that night, the rain turned to snow and we woke up to a message that schools were closed. Shrieks of delight!!! It also happened to be my day off from work so Ella and I spent a delightful day of nothing lounging in bed with a picnic, a little homework and a movie.

 It has been way too long since we opened up all the paint and created.

 Thomas tried to help and managed to get paint on just one side of his nose!

We also gathered to say good-bye to Grant - again. He is back in South Korea teaching elementary kids for another year.
We are so proud of him but it is hard to see him go for 12 whole months.

Trying to get a group shot of these nieces and nephews is always a challenge....
...especially when my mom gets involved.

Enjoying the meltdown with Aubrey and Kayla

Ella is doing great with wearing her glasses as she needs them. I am still struggling with keeping track of the glasses. We had a trip to the dentist with no cavities and that front tooth is still dangling for dear life. We are so proud of her reading! Each night she reads aloud for 20 minutes to us and then has to write about what she read. And although she isn't overly excited about practicing the piano each night, she continues to progress with help with her awesome teacher, Miss Gail. (We adore her)

More up later as I have some catching up to do!
