Sorry to have disappeared…

I don’t even know HOW to begin to catch you up. lol! For the past few weeks we have been battling Ol Man Winter, a concussion, and cabin fever! The concussion is a long story. It isn’t me, but Matt and it happened at work. I can’t get into it anymore right now, except to ask for prayers. He is doing a bit better, but we are going to have a fight on out hands with the company.


So happy things!!!


I decided to start working with Geography a few minutes each morning. The kids are doing these activities together, with Isabelle having a bit extra. We did the World one morning and moved on to China, since it is Lunar New Year.

We had a 100 day party… A few days late…lol! The kids made a snack mix with 100 things. It was so fun counting them out with Gabriel. 😉 Isabelle’s is the one that LOOKS organized, but Gabriel PURPOSEFULLY placed EACH piece on his!

Of course, there have been animal shenanigans! Silly goats!

Yesterday we put 8 Maple Taps out. No sap yet, it was too cold. There were flurries all around and I was slipping and sliding in Matt’s work boots (but staying warm in my new fleece lined leggings!). I broke my toe late Friday night and they were the only shoes I could get on. :/
