Friday day we spent the day catching up on some reading and math and then baking valentine cookies. Samuel had an idea to sell them for $4 each but then he remembered that he just explained to Molly that Valentine’s Day is about showing other people how much we love them. So he decided to set out a table on the driveway and give them away to the kids as they walked home from school. He ended up with a dollar and two suckers in return!
Avery has learned the art of climbing onto furniture so she was not about to be left out of the fun.
Oh she’s about the orneriest thing you’ll ever meet but also the sweetest and she knows how to turn on the charm just about the time she’s getting into big trouble. Ever try to get on to a 16 month old while she’s got her arms wrapped tightly around your neck and she’s smothering your face in kisses? Trouble with a capital T I tell you.
And then just like that the spring weather was gone and the snow and ice moved in. But as you can see, there’s fun to be had there too.
