Besides being sick repeatedly, we’ve been doing some pretty fun stuff around here. It’s been a busy winter……
We have a lot of birthdays in January. Lulu’s birthday and my mom’s birthday (these are just a couple) are about a week apart.
It was my mom’s 73rd birthday. Doesn’t she look so good???
Little H is really liking school. When I started homeschooling H was two and now he is creeping up on four. It is slowly getting easier and easier. He really loves to do “Boo Boo School”, which is what we call his school time. I can’t get over how big he looks putting his snowman puzzle together.
Yup, he’s kinda obsessed with picking his nose these days!
Someone dug a hole in the backyard and then it rained and rained all day. Then, someone played in the hole full of muddy water and was caked with mud. So, someone got their first bath. Oh. my. word. Boomer was so soft after his bath. I could not stop petting him!
Lulu found a baby salamander in our yard this past week and it quickly became her new pet. It lived in a take out container (with holes!) that she had filled with leaves, twigs and dirt.
She named him Josh.
She had a blanket and pillow for him. She also made him a mini playground out of legos. (How cute is that?)
The Hubs and I knew he wouldn’t live long.
He didn’t. He died lastThursday.
She cried. Hard.
“Josh was the best salamander I ever had! I wish he were still alive.”
Her daddy helped her bury him next to my lemon tree and she made a cardboard headstone for him.
R.I.P. Josh the Salamander.
On a lighter note, we started ballet.
Looking forward to what adventures lie ahead as winter starts to wind down. Spring will be here before we know it!
