This little man is at an age where I see changes in him daily. He only comes three days a week, and I just love all of his words. He puts three or four words together in a sentence now. And I really do think that this has only happened in the last couple of weeks. He's always been quite chatty and he really communicates well.

Ten days ago, there was over a foot of snow on the ground. Today it was sunny and 10 degrees Celsius. We all appreciated getting outside to get some Vitamin D.

There is an Olympic-sized rink in Port Moody. It's fun to watch Grandson play on the big ice. It gives him so much more skating room.

We have had a really great morning. I always forget how much more independent that my after-schoolers can be. And it helps that they haven't all seen each other in awhile so they are playing well and cooperating.

It was Crazy Hair Day today. And it was their Valentines Day celebrations too!

I was really happy that we had another Snow Day today, but you sort of have to wonder why. It snowed off and on through the night, but this is what we woke up to. I imagine that the roads were rather treacherous, and I am sure that that was the biggest consideration. But I was a little bit surprised that there wasn't any school today......and if you didn't have to go anywhere, then it was a really nice day!

The schools in Maple Ridge closed today because of the snow and I am really hoping that they close again tomorrow too. Honestly, today wasn't even that bad.......but it is snowing like crazy right now and Hubby is out shoveling the driveway. Again. I am so done with snow. As my niece put on her Instagram, "It's snowing again. Barf." She made me smile......as I share her sentiment.
Hubby and I went into New Westminster on Saturday because I had an ophthalmologist appointment. We had around 10 inches of snow in Maple Ridge when we left and it wasn't as bad as we headed west. I was going to cancel, but I am happy that I didn't because I had my OCT scan and my eye pressures measured, (14 for the right and 15 for the left) and we were in and out in less than 15 minutes.
The weekend went by fast and we didn't really do much. I have an awful cough so I guess I picked up that virus that everyone else had in January. Sigh. I noticed that Lucas has it again too, as we sound the same.
We went outside for a little bit of playtime this morning. It snowed during the night but it was clear all day.
Lucas loves the snow, but you could tell that he wasn't feeling 100%. Isaac is funny....he just likes to eat it.
And as you can see, little Lukas likes to eat it too. I seem to know a lot of children who like to eat the snow.

It was kind of pleasant this afternoon.
It wasn't really warm out, but if you were in the sun, it felt okay.
This little toddler moves a lot. He was so happy to run today.
He really never stays still. Every pic that I have of him, he is moving.
Sweet Pea loved playing outside.
This little pile of residual snow kept then busy for a half an hour or so. They were chipping pieces off and throwing them onto the road so they would break. Or melt.
Preston was stepping on a piece of snow here. He enjoyed watching his friends, but he enjoyed running and jumping more. He would always come over to see what they were up to, but he was having so much fun running around the cul-de-sac.
We are all looking so forward to Spring. (especially me!) It was Groundhog Day today and depending on who you want to believe, it sounds like we are supposed to have an early Spring. I hope so.....January was way too cold!
