First snow

Max's response to the winter wonderland this morning was 'Mom, it's not even an inch...'. Evelyn was much more excited to explore the way snow feels on our long, slow walk to school.

Did you say 'empty box?!'

Nobody loves playing in empty boxes more than Evelyn. This is her boat, the Ella.


Maxton came in third place for his Den at the pine wood derby and was VERY proud!

Mom is cool, too

The world keeps turning

We took an evening walk through Old Town to get some fresh air and perspective. We were far from the only ones with this idea and enjoyed ourselves - and some cocoa - very much!

Guten tag

Dad's plane is delayed in Germany while they work on it, so he's exploring Ramstein and doing research for our big trip when he retires. Here are some scenes from the adventure so far.

Helping Hands Updates

The Helping Hands have been very busy getting energy out with silly dance moves.  They've also been working hard at setting their classroom up for winter.  Ian got to go on the class field trip to the high school to learn about musical instruments.

It was 18 over the weekend and through Tuesday, was a balmy 38 when we left home yesterday, and was 55 this morning with a high of 65. We are loving the warm blast - too bad its back to frigid tomorrow!
