Spring Break

We spent the rest of our Spring break getting outside as much as we could.  I just wanted to relax and have some fun with the kids.  So one of the afternoons, I took pictures of the kids playing outside.  Mazie was pushing Jacob on the glider swing and acting like he was knocking her over…

The laughter that followed was really great.  I love hearing that sound!  But you have to go back and watch what Jamie is doing in the series of pictures.  She was climbing onto the side of play set.  Then she would hang on the swing and let her body momentum swing her side-to-side.  While it is funny to see, she has been told several times to not do that because of swinging into whoever may be on the other swing or the glider.  She didn’t get into trouble but she was told to not do that again. again!

When they were tired of being outside or it was just too darn windy (more on that another day), they decided to make my room a playground for their stuffed animals.  All of them.  So while Jacob instructed the girls on where each animal should be placed…

and then supervised in the placing of said animals…yes, I’m aware he is holding a bear in a pink dress…the girls were working diligently to please their bossy brother…

Then he decided to entertain me (or the camera, really I’m not sure which!) with a puppet show…

The facial expressions kept me laughing for quite some time!

Snow Day

Today was a snow day.  Yep, we got an extended weekend due to snow.  These pictures are from a day or two before New Years when we got our first snow.  However, you can rest assured that the same playing was going on today!  Although Jacob did stay out a little longer than last time.

Jacob is a master when it comes to making snow angels.  He should be since he is constantly practicing on the carpet…

He also enjoys knocking the snow off of the tree…

The girls went to work, cleaning off the play set…

which made Jacob want to try.  So dad put more snow on the slide so he could try…

I think that smile says it all.  There was also a little taste testing.  Don’t worry, we made sure it wasn’t yellow!

Back to school tomorrow!

Jacob’s Day

So we’re going to pretend that today is Friday because Jeremiah and I went out on a date and I didn’t have time yesterday to blog (more on our date later)! 

Did you know that Jeremiah can play any instrument using the kids?  Well, he can and the instruments always sound wonderful.  For example, Jacob wanted Dad to play the piano.  So he assumed the position…

And Jeremiah started with Beethoven’s Fifth…

I think with next picture, you can really “hear” the piano playing…

It’s funny since Jeremiah has never had one lesson in his entire life!

Wednesday with Jamie

Jamie has been working on a project in school.  She is supposed to research England and do a presentation next week about what she found.  So today she practiced her presentation.  She is going to talk about the reason for the afternoon tea.

She set the table…

complete with napkins…

Poured the tea…

And taught Minnie Mouse how to hold the cup.  She said the little finger being out was to help prevent spilling the tea!

She also told me that the reason for even having the tea in the afternoon was because the Queen couldn’t wait for a small bite to eat between lunch and her late supper.  Her presentation is next Friday.  I think she is going to be awesome!
