Weekly Summary ~ 2/8/15 - 2/14/15

Ah, February.  Why are you so cold this year?!

I am excited that it is already February 16th though.  More than halfway through the month!  March and hopefully warmer temps will be here before we know it!  At least I keep telling myself that.  :)

The kids had school cancelled today because of the cold.  Originally they were supposed to have the day off for President's Day but they lost it because of a cancellation in January.  Now they will lose another of their Easter vacation days.  I think they will only have Good Friday off now.  That's a bummer.  If they have any more cancellations, days will probably be tacked on at the end of the year.

Anyway, let's get on to last week's photos ...

February 8:  In my bag
In my bag I have been carrying a crocheting project I am currently working on. I'm not good at being idle so if I ever have to wait for a few minutes, I pull out my project and work on it. I figure it is better than spending time messing around on my phone.  :)

{February 9:  Energy}
February 9:  Energy
Our sweet golden, Honey, doesn't have as much energy as she used to, but she will still jump up to get a snowball to munch on.

{February 10:  This inspires me}
February 10:  This inspires me
This inspires me to try to photograph frozen bubbles again. This photo is from January 2014 when it was so bitterly cold that bubbles would freeze. It was an interesting experiment. But I prefer to play with bubbles on warm, summer days.  :)

February 11:  On the wall
The walls in the preschool room at our church are painted with a Noah's Ark theme. This particular section has elephants painted on the wall.  One of the lovely and talented ladies from our church did all the painting. Isn't it amazing?!

A coneflower in the winter isn't nearly as pretty as a coneflower in summer.

The temptation was too great for her. She had to get up to eat the treat.   :)

{February 14:  Love}
February 14:  Love
Even though we don't usually do anything for Valentine's Day, this year my love bought flowers for me and Keira. A bouquet for each of us. How sweet of him!

Linking with Tamar:

My quick rundown of the week:
Nick stayed home from school on Monday not feeling well.  He had thrown up Saturday night, felt fine on Sunday, then threw up again Sunday night and Monday morning.  A friend suggested I get him tested for strep since it can have some strange symptoms, so we went to see our doctor.  No strep though, just a virus.  He was feeling better and went to school the rest of the week without incident.
Tuesday morning we had a VBS meeting at church.  It may seem a bit early to start planning VBS but there are a lot of things that need taken care of early.  
Tuesday afternoon a friend came over so we could experiment with some crafty stuff.  I will share what we did another time.
Wednesday morning I had breakfast with another friend.  We have some things in common and had a nice time chatting.
Wednesday afternoon I took Honey for a nice, long walk at a local state park.  The sun was shining and the temperatures were above freezing, so I decided to enjoy it while I could.  We had a nice walk.  It felt great to be out in the fresh air.
Thursday morning Nick had volleyball practice again.  They are scheduled to play their games this Thursday but the weather might interfere with that plan.  I think the high temp for the day is supposed to be 10 and the low -8.  So we'll see.
Friday the kids had the day off of school for an inservice day.  We didn't really do much.  Just hung around the house being kinda lazy.
Saturday was soccer as usual.  Except that it was picture day.  I always buy the smallest package just so I can get the group picture.  I don't think I have ever done anything with the photos from previous years, yet anyway.  Eventually they will go in Alex's scrapbook.
After soccer we went to lunch and then to Michael's to get more paint for Alex's Titanic model.  Doug said we needed to some touch-up paint.
That's about it!  Nothing too exciting!

My daughter is in school in Boston so I am nearly ashamed to whimper at all about the 10 inches of snow we got pounded with today - but dang! Oh how I remember the days of fretting about added days to make-up for snow/cancelled days. Miss having my kiddos at home, but I don't miss that.

Your frozen bubble has inspired me (thank you) and your coneflower photo is striking.

great group of photos.

Love the picture of Honey in the snow! The mural is gorgeous, what talent!

Hope you have a great week!!
