hooping and dancing and singing with the kids. exhausting but a blast! (except for poor sage who kept running into the spinning hoop....not a good combination considering it's right at face level for him).i've been spending most of our days trying to get back into a routine of life around here that includes housecleaning, laundry, homeschooling, crafting and play. there just don't seem to be enough hours in the day for everything we want to do!
jaden has been playing with clay and drawing pictures of fairies, unicorns and other fantastical things. sage lays on the floor and intently plays with his cars. he loves car and tractors. nina was into needle felting until she lost 1 needle and broke the other one. i need to get some ordered asap for her. caleb has been into legos and writing all things eragon into his handmade leather journal that nina and i made him for solstice.
it's been a chilly winter with very little snow but the wood stove has been keeping us quite toasty. sure beats the $600 monthly gas bills of past!
