Otherwise known as the Boxing Day that wasn’t. Here in Minnesota it was life as usual. Well for the rest of the world (even Baba went to work as usual!). WE had a Boxing Day as usual. For the Reinsch-Johnson family that means a day in pj’s playing with our new toys and eating leftovers.
The day was nice enough to boot the kids outside for a bit of course.
Echo gave her all as a fairy flitting here and there.
It was the next day – Friday where we got the perfect snowman making snow. And as a promise had been extracted from me to NOT do schoolwork until after New Years, well this Mommy is cringing at the lack of worksheets and spelling tests… just a little!
Though the kids did make good use of those new toys.
We also got our Christmas care package from Grandma and Grandpa Mike. Definitely full of some fun goodies.
The kids had tons of fun over the weekend with their cousins. There was no Sunday school so they played on uninterrupted.
Going to a movie with Nana and Baba!
We did a little shopping on the Monday and spent some of our Christmas money, replaced a game we had already and generally had a nice family outing.
Then we snuck in ONE learning activity – I had taped a new Wild Kratts. So we watched and did our mini poster.
Then… well we had one day left to the year… which I will talk about in our next entry!!!
