Everything is Great Around Here

March is almost here. Our winter hasn't been that bad and I actually like winter weather. But as I was looking over photos on my phone I saw so many of nice weather days, days where we could actually be outside for extended periods of time, and I realized that I am ready for those days again.

This is What -10 Looks Like at my Place


This is the coldest we have ever seen on our weather station. 

Beautiful crisp morning


Throwing boiling water outside and it freezes before it hits the ground. 


We placed a cup of water outside and it was frozen solid in about 18 minutes.

A Belated Valentine's Post

Preparing Valentine's for the exchange.





Something I didn't realize is how much goes into the Valentine box when you have a school kid. It is not just a box covered in tissue paper. I saw tanks, and trees, and basketball hoops. Folks go all out for these cardboard boxes. 

Isaac made a building with the roof blown in. Batman is chasing the Riddler who is trying to steal some treats. 


The other kids put stickers on paper sacks. Ha ha!

Michael and I got dressed up to eat in our dining room, alone. A tradition we have had since 2003.



We did eat more than bread and cheese, but this was the best part.

On A Cold Morning in February

We already had the day off for President's Day, and even if we hadn't we definitely would have with the sub-zero temperatures outside.

Homeschool Science Fair 2015

It was amazing evening at St. Vincent College for the annual Homeschool Science Fair. The kids entered on teams from LMCA. 

Margaret's team's project was about teeth whitening.


James's team's project was about implosion. 

Henry's team's project was about glow sticks.

Henry's team won Best Overall in his age group. 


Remember the second science fair (2011) when Becky and I took this photo?


Well look at these cuties now!


After the science fair we all enjoyed pizza with Miss Diane (not pictured).
