Basketball and Dance

Andrew and Nathaniel both did YMCA Basketball this winter.  Nathaniel's team went to the playoffs, and Andrew's team won the championship for their age group!

Emily and Michael went to their Daddy Daughter Dance at the YMCA again this year.  They had a great time, as usual.  This time the theme was Winter Wonderland instead of Valentine's Day.

Snow Days

We had snow in Alabama this week!  The kids were out of school on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  We had a good time.  Each day we spent the morning doing some chores, and then played in the afternoon.  On Tuesday, the kids (except for Daniel) had fun playing in the snow.  We had invited some friends in the neighborhood to come over and they all had a great time.  By Thursday, the snow was basically melted.

Oh, by the way--it is 74 degrees today. Crazy weather, huh?

Pinewood Derby

Andrew had his first Pinewood Derby last week.  He did great!  He came in first on one of the races.  He knew exactly what design he wanted--a green truck with fire on the side.  Michael helped him with the shape of the car, and I helped him paint it and put on the fire decals.  He got the award for "Most Creative Use of Materials."
