And without any sort of notice it was over! But not without some exuberant amount of photos… so please enjoy the light hearted overflow!
Well I have to say it didn’t take reflection to realize that THIS January was a much easier month for the adults and disappointing for the kids. Of course, I am talking about the weather, no Arctic chill, but also not much in the way of truly useful (for play) substantial snow! At least getting to “Jesus School” on Sundays was much easier on the family. Frigid rides in the van in the early morning is never a blast.
But I get ahead of myself – We ran in the new year (well partied until the evening) with Renee’s family and friends at her folks’ hobby farm. There was kids to play with, amazing snacks to munch on and entertaining adult company. Absolutely no complaints here! Though we did not make midnight. It may be another year or two before Miss Echo can handle being out and about and HAPPY at midnight.
Our first weekend AFTER New Years was of course Home Depot… Echo starts up after August if you believe it! If you have NOT checked into this free activity (on both sides of the border no less) please do! Ages for this one are suggested 5-12. Such cute little sleds!
And a Wild Kratts!
I think 2015 was well begun with creativity on all sides!
With January also came our revisit of all things China and Chinese New Year. You can see our China resource page for this year’s studies HERE. I am going to have to think this through to really find a way to make a whole new unit for next year!!!
Ok WOW this has been here a while without posting (like last year prepped and not quite posted)… talk about a look back… long hair on me and tiny Echo! Well better late than never! A bit of a filler before I get the January reflection up and running. So enjoy the glance back at our fun in Minnesota!
There is just too much to see and do in Minnesota and we plan to do our best to share it all!!! Enjoy the overflow.
