Our Eighth Week ~ 2014

Last week was another unusual one.  The kids had school on Monday (President's Day) to make up one of their snow days, but then had Tuesday off due to more snow.  Then freezing rain moved in which caused a two-hour delay on Wednesday.  Thursday morning I was finally able to meet my friend Amy at Panera.  We had postponed two weeks in a row because Alex was sick.  It was nice getting caught up.  Friday I watched another friend's toddler for a few hours.  You saw pictures of her in Sunday's Scavenger Hunt post.  She's such a cutie!  Saturday I taught a class teaching folks how to move out of auto mode on their cameras.  It was really fun!  I came home to a really cool snow fort built in the back yard.  (That was shown in the scavenger hunt post too.)  Then my two nieces hung out with us Saturday night while my sister-in-law went out with friends.

Here's hoping this week is more normal.  So far, so good!  :)

Anyway, here are a few snaps from last week ...

Sunday afternoon I noticed the snow had changed from pellet-like to more fluffy, so my macro and I went out to investigate.  I managed to capture some more snowflake close ups. (If you didn't see the last batch, here's the link ... Beauty can be found).  I'm eager for spring to arrive, but I will miss seeing all the details in the snowflakes.

I "caught" Nick reading his Bible on Tuesday afternoon (the snow day).  I love seeing my kids dig into the Word of God!

Tuesday evening Nick had finally dug a big enough hole out of this pile of snow to be able to fit in it.  He wanted to build an igloo but ended up with more of a cave.  :)

The sunsets last week were all very different but all very beautiful.  At least on the days that we saw the sun.  :)  This sunset was on Saturday.  You can see most of the snow is gone now - after the warmer temps we had.

While my nieces were here on Saturday, they had fun with Nick and Alex playing in Alex's tunnel.  I managed to get him to be still long enough to snap a pic.

That's it from my neck of the woods.  Thanks for stopping by!  Make your week memorable!

The macro shots of snow flakes are so cool. Nature is amazing. Great snow cave too. It's more like spring in my neck of the woods. I miss winter.

That sky, wow!! How insane to have school to make up for a snow day and then get off for more snow - oh winter!

Love that top photo, as well as the snow cave and sunset. I remember one winter my sisters and I had a snow fort large enough to seat several people -- it lasted three months!
