The kids and I are having 20 minutes of journaling time on Mondays so right now so I’m hoping to get 20 minutes of blogging done as my own journaling. We’ve chosen the topic of our sledding trip so here we go:
This weekend we headed up to the mountains for some deep snow for sledding! We’ve gotten a few storms in town this year but nothing that stuck long enough to sled.
John was stoically disinterested!
All three waiting for a push. This didn’t turn out as disasterous as I expected!
Catherine generally much prefers to go with an adult!
Matthew is becoming quite adventurous and enjoys gaining some speed. He found it hilarious when he “hit” the rock at the end, the rest of us adults didn’t find it quite as humorous!
Catherine hit a bumped that knocked her flat on her back!
More of stoic John!
Quick family pic!
And the grandbabies with Amma and Papa!
Papa and Amma managed to coax a smile out of John for a bit!
And Catherine thought it was awesome to pull John back to the car in his new sled:
Hot apple cider and fresh banana bread waited for us at the car!
Now we have 8 minutes left of journaling and I’m out of photos from the excursion so let’s back up to earlier in the day. We of course couldn’t go play until we got our hardwork done. Papa Ron is converting our extra bathroom to a closet and has some great mudding helpers on the drywall. Their preferred work clothes are pajamas and rainboots for some reason:
Amma and Papa brought us a deck of fossil cards and have been playing go fish:
And in other school projects we are working on at home, Matthew loves do some coding and working on his hours of code. Catherine and John also like to get in on the act:
Amma and Papa came back to visit us for Thanksgiving and have been having a great time. John showed them how he reads:
And stole kisses from Amma:
Okay, timers up and we’re sharing our writing.
And Matthew’s finished project:
See you all again in official blog form next Monday at least :-)
