We've had a nice little pause in the cold weather.
All the better for mid-day sledding.

And skating.
Quite a robust PhysEd program with our home school.
On Tuesday E participated in a Math Olympics event as part of a team.
Parents were not invited to attend, so I asked E to take some pictures with his handy camera.
This is what he brought home.
So, enjoy the experience as seen through E's eyes.

Weekend Retreat

I was thinking we'd have a weekend of card playing and colouring.
But the boys had other ideas.
Friday afternoon they grabbed a ride out of town with Grnny for a weekend out of the city.
And since there was an extra spot in the car .... A took a friend with him.
A little fresh air, a little skating and a lot of fun.
Thanks Grnny and Grndad.
And then back to the city for church and then movie night with their parents.
(P.S. Quit hogging the couch Charlie!!)

Silly Silly

When A and his good friend get together there is always silliness.

We were playing a game we got for Christmas (thanks other Brfts).
One element of the game is that one person draws a picture and the next guesses what they think it is.
So I drew this ..... And I'm sure you can all see that it's a water cooler, right?
And the next person guessed .... 
Robot Lord of Marshmallows. 
(Head shaking)
Hilarity ensued.
