So, cold season hits because we waver between 88 during the day and 48 at night (I’m not complaining, but anytime you fluctuate 40 degrees in hours, everyone gets colds). It’s also girl scout cookie season, baseball tryouts are this weekend, and school is busy, busy, busy. And we just finished reading book 2 of Harry Potter, so muggles don’t fare well at conversations at our house right now. And I think, in general terms, that catches you up! Here are the pictures to get us caught up that way:
Starting with the few (too few, but it was all afterschool visits while we were running around or just hanging out, so I didn’t go picture crazy), from Grandpa and Grandma YaYa’s visit.
No idea what they were saying…
We had a big dinner when Caroline was here
with cake to celebrate all the February birthdays
and lots and lots of story reading
I also owe this picture from the ranch – Jacob in the golf cart:
And then it was girl scouts! First a trip to the Fire Station to learn first aid:
And then cookie boothing. First booth ever (ruthless saleswoman, I have)
she ran people down in the parking lot, then turned on the charm…
And then a smaller fun one with a friend from another troop:
After which we went for ice cream and a swing through the bookstore:
What else? Molly is winding down ballet, and wants to start up with tennis next. So I had to get more shots of her dancing. I love her dancing! I’ll really miss it.
Liz is a great teacher.
And Molly has blossomed as gracefully as her genes allow…
Jacob never met a dog he didn’t like:
Nor Molly a book (it’s grainy, but it looked like an old impressionist painting to me… it was in low light while we were waiting in the lobby for a play to start.
Also, Molly learned to ride a bike, with training wheels, but still – it’s her first venture on a wheeled anything and we’re thrilled and proud!
So is she.
And finally, Monday we finally got Jacob the haircut he’s been needing. And it happens that Chuck just got his cut too, so here are my handsome haircut boys.
And Jacob built that ship all by himself. The kid is a genius at building anything and everything!
