More stuff!

 BayLea's choir had a performance. They performed with a group from Colorado Mesa University called Tone It Up. It was really fun to listen to them together.

 Soccer begins far this season, it has been freezing, and more freezing.

 They've been doing some really neat things in 4th grade. They made arrowheads out of glass pieces to learn how long it would take to make an arrowhead.

 They also ground corn, and then later on ate corn tortillas from their corn. BayLea said it was "DISGUSTING".
 Working with Mr. Ventling on her arrowhead.
 Breccan learning how to determine the important pieces of information in a non-fiction article about dragonflies. He retained a ton of info from this activity.
 And I just really love this picture. He looks so hard at work. Plus, I just like the edit on it! LOL
 BayLea comes so close so many times to scoring goals. One of these days!
 Breccan had two goals at this game.
 Our first freezing day of soccer games. WIND galore. It was awful.
It was hard to even wrap the blanket around us, it was blowing so hard.

BUT the next week was even colder. We froze our butts, plus it began to sprinkle, so it was cold and we were wet.
 Breccan made me go with him so he could take my picture. He wanted me in a dress...that wasn't happening! LOL But he did a pretty good job. We had to crop a little bit in some of them, but I think he did a really nice job. Plus I hardly ever have any pictures of me. So I'm happy to have a few!

A Smattering of Photos

 Uncle Josh was in town over night and dropped in to see us for about 45 minutes! They were playing and I thought I'd try to get a picture of them. It's impossible to get a picture on these three.

 PE is so much fun for kids. I hated PE when I was little, but we didn't get to do these fun things. Both of my kids love it.

 This is BayLea's Valentine's Day box. So cute!

 Mrs. Nofzinger is trying to gather Dad's to be 'Watch DOGS' at our school...just an extra pair of male eyes to help keep an eye out for anything unusual taking place. It's also just a cool thing for Dad's to become involved many dad's don't go to the schools. Jery was one of the first three recruits. I think there has been one more dad who has joined the ranks, but I haven't seen many of them on duty as of yet. We'd love to get LOTS of dad's running around in their Watch DOGS shirts.
 We went on a bike ride the other day. OMG we had so much fun! We started out at the Butterfly Pavilion and ended up almost to Connected Lakes before turning around. This will definitely be something that we do more often.

 BayLea and I had a Mama-Daughter evening out. We went to dinner and then to see Legally Blonde at the college theater. We had a wonderful time. My little girl is growing up, and she is so much fun to hang out with. Love her so very very much. Meanwhile, Jery and Breccan had their individual time...they went bowling and then out for dinner, and then watched a movie at home.

 I love these pictures of the two of us...BUT I have to pull them into Photoshop as they are not properly exposed!  :)

 Breccan's 2nd grade programs as so cute. My face hurt at the end of the program from smiling. Just darling!
 Breccan played an instrument.

And he had two short speaking parts. He did a great job, and worked really hard on saying it really slowly so it could be understood.
