Glad to see some new posts on here again. We had the coldest week of the year this week. I think it actually got down into the teens one night and I think I might have seen a piece of snow fall from the sky on Friday! Can’t wait for spring!
Not much new in our lives. Here are some recent pics.
Last week I went with Eliza’s class to a nearby forest preserve to explore and observe nature. We had a beautiful day. It was in the thirties and no wind. There was snow on the ground so we were able to find lots of great animal tracks and we saw 5 deer. It was beautiful!
The guy playing guitar is Mr Leki. He is the Ecology teacher and teaches the kids an amazing amount about nature. He also sings songs about Chicago and nature with the kids that he writes himself. They love him!
Cider loves to romp and play in the snow!! The cold doesn’t bother him a bit because of his thick woolly fur. the trick is getting all the packed ice and snow out of his fur when he comes inside. It’s nearly impossible!!
If you’ve ever wondered how I babysit so many kids after school in our tiny apartment, this is how. Now you know my secret. shhhhh. don’t tell their parents. ;)
Ben was not too excited about his haircut.
A new batch of cookies come out of the oven about every other day this time of year.
Luke and I finished the Christmas decorations today.
Finally some nice fall weather.
