There has been no snowman building around here. In fact since December, we haven’t seen any snow except up on the mountains. While most of the country has been in the deep freeze, our February has been warm! We’ve had many days in the 60 degree range and our garden thought is was warm too and started coming to life. We are not used to seeing things grow here in February.
With no snow and warm weather Kaitlyn has been climbing the trees in our backyard and convinced Sam to join her. Sam had fun but Kaitlyn seemed to find her place. There have been a few afternoons I have looked outside and seen her sitting in a tree.
Sam and Abby have been playing basketball since the start of January. I haven’t yet taken pictures of Abby but here is Sam playing a couple of weeks ago. His season just ended last Saturday but Abby has one more game. Sam likes basketball but he is more excited for baseball season to begin in May.
The kids got discount tickets to a Jazz game as part of the Jr. Jazz program so Mike took Abby and Sam and Scott and Elizabeth joined them too. They rode the Frontrunner train to Salt Lake and Sam entertained himself taking some selfies.
Abby also did a little ice skating this month. Her class has pen pals from a school in Taiwan. To our surprise a group of those students came all the way to visit her class in Provo. Her class got to walk over to the ice skating rink to skate with the pen pals. I got to chaperone. With our crazy warm weather the walk was pleasant.
Now Abby is asking for ice skating lessons. We’ll see….
Then there was Valentines Day. We did our traditional Valentine making activity but I was sick in bed so I didn’t make any Valentines or take any pictures of the mess. I did get out of bed to take pictures of the table in the morning. We always leave our Valentines, chocolates and small gifts out on the table early in the morning.
Kaitlyn made sure even Boo got a Valentine. I think Boo just looked at it and wondered why this stuff was in his bed. I loved my roses in the dining room. I think I need flowers in there more often.
