1. I think we only had one snow fall in the Valley so far this winter that dropped enough snow to actually play in or make a snowman. The kids took advantage of the wet sticky snow and built a huge snowman in the park across the street. They needed Caleb to help lift the midsection and head onto the bottom.
2. Seth and Lydia took ski lessons at the Bogus Basin ski slopes for three weeks in January. The lessons were on Tuesday mornings and open to homeschoolers. Anna had absolutely no interest in riding on a ski lift or skiing down a steep mountain slope so opted out of this activity.
|Dad even came up on the last day to see what these two had learned.|
3. Last weekend we drove to the Winter Carnival in McCall, ID to see the snow sculptures. It was a fun birthday outing for Anna again and just an awesome way to spend a Saturday...other than having to get up early to be on the road by 7:00.
|The Jetsons won first prize.|
|Although they did throw out a good share of candy at the Mardi Gras parade in McCall they also gave away a ton of Mardi Gras beads!|
