The Aftermath

Mixing Colors

This week we have been learning to mix colors with our art curriculum "God and the History of Art".  Even though it is intended for ages ten and up, Abigail is doing well with only the occasional frustration.

Of course Miriam had to paint as well.  You can see the sophisticated color mixing she has done here on her mini masterpiece.  She is exploring a bit of an abstract/ modern kind of art....  hehe.

Constructing an igloo

The little igloo, brought to you by the Daddy and Abbie construction team.

Look Mom, Snow head!  Remember the depressed robot in "The hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"? Yes, her head is in the little igloo.  She assures me it is warm in there.  I guess "warm" is relative.

Little snow people.

Hauling snow for the big igloo.

Daddy and Abbie working on their big construction project, an Igloo big enough for the two of them to crawl into.  It will be really great but unfortunately the night after these were taken the freezing rain came.  The small mountain of snow that was to become their big igloo is now encased in ice and it's future is unclear.  

Let it snow!

Whoo hoo!!

I am ready to go out mom.

Playing in the snow is a tough job.  It's only 6:30 and they are down for the count.

Morning Break

Good thing our school doesn't have the zero tolerance thing going on.  The boys are having a great time on morning break.

Abigail's Bell Choir

OK, it's definitely been awhile since we've posted. What can I say? It's been a busy season!

This last weekend Abigail performed at church in the children's bell choir, in the video it's hard to see, but she actually does have a bell, and she played it so well!
