The other day

I found a paper in Britton's backpack and this is what it said,

"Hi, my name is Britton Kemp and I am running for Class President.  The reason you should vote for me is...
Wait for it... Wait for it...
I'm awesome!"

I love that kid.

Right now

I can't sleep tonight.

Things I want to remember about today:
Piano with Britton-how much he loves it and how easily it comes to him, he starts lessons in a couple of weeks and his teacher gave him a book to look over and get started with if he wants, he is just devouring it

Going to the park with the kids-it's the second time we've been this week, Monday we went and saw a duck sitting on her eggs so we just had to go back to check on her, she is still there waiting patiently, saw another duck with newly hatched ducklings, my kids all light up while watching them, found the best climbing tree and secret tree clubhouse, decided we need to go back at least every other day

Practicing piano with Haley-seeing how hard she works through her frustration, it doesn't always come easy for her, but she is maturing and growing so much and she is not giving up

Life is good, but I miss Jason like crazy. He has had to be gone for work most of this month. He'll have to stay in North Dakota longer than we planned. Boo!

President's day cabin trip

We took a short day trip to the cabin on President's Day. It was Lily's first time up there in the snow. She was a real champ being carried by Jason in the Baby Bjorn while snowmobiling up there. Britton and Haley had tons of fun sledding with the neighbor kids. Definitely a great day off. I hope we can spend more time there before the snow melts.

Sewing days

At the beginning of the school year, Biz, my mom, and I started having a weekly sewing day on Thursday's. First of all, let me just say that I am NOT a sewer, but this is one of my favorite things and I always look forward to it. We mostly just make things up as we go, making simple things using materials we already have. Lots of skirts and blankets. It's so much fun having a creative outlet every week. My last big project was making little stuffed monsters for all the kids on my side of the family for Christmas. They were so much fun to make. I wish I would have taken a picture of all of them. Here's Haley's and Lily's.
Here is a picture of the skirt I made yesterday for Haley. It's from an old t- shirt of mine. I also made 2 pairs of leggings for Lily out of my old shirts. Look at me be frugal, green, and crafty all at the same time!

Lily is growing up so fast! I wish I could freeze time.
