the Ice Show!

We had our skating club Ice Show on March 1st - the older kids were all in lessons this year, and came a long way!
Ruth's solo - 'Magic Carpet Ride'

Ruth's group routine - 'Harry Potter'

more snow and technical difficulties

Yes. More snow. Crazy.
Levi looked outside this morning and yelled. He told me "It's snowing from the sky. I don't want snow on the ground anymore." I'm with him on that one. Spring - where are you?!!

Ran into some technical difficulties with my computer and doing taxes - Josh tried to get windows going to run a program, my whole computer crashed, he was able to sneak a way in to get my photos, videos, and documents (thank goodness!), and then had to reload everything from "scratch" onto the darn thing.
All that to say I don't have the program I need to do the videos. Hoping to get that on here this weekend and be able to share the Ice Show skating with everyone! Oh, and I have a few videos of the kids playing on the snow pile in the yard too!


Spring, where art thou?!!

Anyone have their fingers crossed for spring?
Umm... I don't think it's working. Maybe cross them tighter... or something.
It started storming Sunday afternoon/evening, continued through Monday and the night. Tuesday it was done storming, but it looked like this. For the record, this was after Josh spent 2 hours on Monday shovelling and clearing the driveway.

Then we had the co-op guys come and shove back the banks on either side of the driveway so that we can get in and out, and so we have room to push more snow if it comes. The kids were happy!

Levi - he loves playing in the snow!

on top of the snowbank they're up to the top of the van!

Myles wouldn't stay inside with the kids outside, but he had a little trouble with the deep snow!

Levi came in, looking like this - one sock, one mitten, and a hat full of snow pulled down over his eyes!

So, that was the start to our week - 2 snow days from school! (and our kids have a PD day on Friday, so only a 2 day week!) I hope it's true about March - in like a lion, out like a lamb!
