Music, Ice Fishing & stuff

 BayLea's last performance at LOM was last night. It was after school choir. She looked beautiful!

 This was just a shot I took of her for fun!

 Josh picking Breccan up from our hotel at 6:15 a.m. to head out to the lake in Grand Lake.
 I wonder where they are???

 Ethan got to ride one of the fishing monitor's snow mobile.

 On our way up there, we got a flat! :( Breccan got to learn how to fix a flat.

 Too bad we didn't get any fish.

End of February and Beginning of March

 Now that Mimi is home we had to have Christmas. So we had Christmas in February!

 Camilla came to visit and I had to take a few pictures of that cute little babe!

 BayLea is part of Student Council this year and one of their fundraisers was to raise money for Aubrie, a baby born with heart defects. We had a ROAR rally and part of the rally was to present a check to Aubrie's mom. This is the poster that BayLea helped to make.
 AND...she was honored during that ROAR rally for Ownership of her learning and her future. I can't tell you how proud I was of this hard working girl.

 Soccer has begun. However, our time for practice is at 6:15, and so this week, prior to time-change, we practiced at 5:45 until dark. As you can see, the full moon came up and it was a beautiful DARK night for practice.
 Dr. Suess celebrations always happen at our school. BayLea is dressed wacky.

 And Breccan's class has a great time celebrating too.
 BayLea was also inducted into the National Elementary Honor Society. We were very proud!

 Getting her pin!

And Mimi and Pa were able to be there to watch the induction ceremony. Yay!

I've been doing another 365, a photo a day. Hopefully I'll make it the entire year. We shall see. The last time I did this, many years ago, I made it all the way through December and then it all fell apart. So far I'm enjoying it. The kids have been my main subject so far. Here are some that I've taken of them. (sometime when there are more than one of a type of shot, I only picked one as my photo for the day).
Breccan, Mr. Technology Guy.
 Breccan and his DISGUSTING room!
 My overly sleepy husband. He names EVERY DAY for at least an hour, maybe more.
 Homework time.
 Doing some of his favorite chores...poop scooping.

A new Christmas game we got.

 The last day of each month will be a photo of me and the kids. I don't get in very many, so I've decided that at least once a month, I will take one with them.
 I took all of these of BayLea one day while we were heading somewhere, and the light was beautiful, and I needed a photo for the day. We stopped at the cemetery and shot a few.
