Before Christmas ShenanigansSome of the fun things we've done since we were here last- Our local G2K had a breakfast and board games day on Saturday. All of us went and played some games and ate some donuts with some of Dad's friends.
We attended a Library Christmas party. Everyone brought in some snacks and the kids listened to a few Christmas books and then had snacks with their friends.
The girls got named Snowball and Ginger. They seem to be settling in fairly nicely.
New Year's NonsenseL-bug got some new games for Christmas this year and we're just getting around to trying them out. Ro-bear and I played her in Tsuro. Ro-bear isn't quite old enough to play well yet, but she really loved being part of the game. Another of this new favorite games is Cash N' Guns. Ro-bear just likes to aim the little foam gun at people, but everyone's enjoyed that one thus far.
This was our first full week back to school after such a long break. It was a little rough on Ro-bear and Boo, but L-bear was a trooper. She learned about World War I and the properties of light and worked on an essay for a contest due next week. She's also started a hat for the Chemo Kits she's wanting to make for the local hospital. We went out after Christmas and bought some blankets and stuffed animals to go in them as well. I think its a wonderful idea, but I do wonder how long she'll stick with it and how many hats I'll end up making at the end of the year.
The other thing going on in the near future is Ro-bear's birthday. She'll be 5 this coming week. I find that very hard to believe.
