More Ice Days

We're having another round of closures -- bridges and schools -- and with Valentine's Day and President's Day holidays coming, my kids are having a nice long break. Don't these guys look happy? They are supposed to be programming but I have a suspicion they are watching funny cat videos. As if we don't have our own entertainment.

Dagny has been drawing. So impressed with her horse. The things she can do with a pencil. She's a good writer too! Her short story won a Daughters of the American Revolution contest, and we've been invited to a luncheon and tour downtown.

She's following in Max's footsteps and developing her picture-taking skills too. Of course, a gorgeous sunrise is inspiration. I hope we return to our usual 70 deg. temps. soon. I miss our Carolina warmth.

Gorgeous work, Dagny! I hope the icy weather allows you all plenty of creative time--and maybe some funny cat videos, too. :)

That drawing is amazing! And so important in this age for kids to learn to program. Joshua does his at codeacademy.com
The ice has been interesting, but disruptive. So many people without power. Glad to see you weren't affected.

There will be plenty of time of go out and about... Meanwhile, I find your happy family photos a real warming potion. Drink up!

I love what cozying up allows us to accomplish. WONDERFUL drawing by Dagny.

Faith, Dagny will be pleased with these comments, esp. after seeing Zoe in Blue.

Gary, we pray for those who don't have adequate shelter or warmth. I know these closures are disruptive when both parents are working. I am thankful to stay home.

Mirka, but thank goodness the sun is out! Kids are out playing. It gets awfully noisy when the kids are indoors.

Marcia, I think boredom is the mother of creativity :)

Your daughter's horse drawing is beautiful! I hope you've had a wonderful Valentine's Day--the 70s are returning next week, I hear!

Wow, Vijaya! I'm totally impressed with Dagny's drawing AND her writing!
