We had our last swimming lesson of the session this week and all three kids passed their current level! It is so fun watching them achieve mastery in swimming.
Andrew is now going to be in Beginner 4.
Zane is now going to be in Beginner 2!
And Lucy will now be in Preschool 3.

For the past several years Eric has attended a men's event at my mom's church. It is a "Wild Meat Dinner" and they serve all kinds of food that people hunt. Usually there is elk, deer, turkey, bear, salmon and occasionally moose and duck as the proteins. Eric, of course, LOVES this event since it is all about eating, and both boys have been longing to go for several years.
Well this year, since Andrew turned 8, he got his chance to go. And he LOVED all the different types of meat. He is such a little hunter at heart.
I asked the kids the other day what a great adventure would be to them and Andrew IMMEDIATELY stated "Going hunting, shooting a deer and skinning it. Then eating it."
Apparently he is Eric's child.
What an amazing young man he is becoming. Makes this momma's heart very, very proud.

Two big camera LOVING girls.
Every time I take out my camera they ham it up.
Lucy: Will you take a picture of me mommy? Gwen: Me too! Me too! Then both: I want to see! I want to see!
Lucy: Let's hug each other because we are best friends, ok Gwen?
Andrew finished his pig Valentine holder. He had definite ideas about what it should look like. I even bought a hot glue gun to facilitate the process. Best purchase I have made in a REALLY long time. I should have bought one years ago!

It is never fun when the kids are sick.But Reid is taking sick and miserable to an entirely new level. He has had a fever for just over two days but other than that there are no symptoms. I took him to the doctor today, no ear infection and his nose and sinuses looked good. I knew all that. I just was desperately hoping that something could be done to help my poor little man.

Both boys were given the task of making a Valentine's Day box to hold their class valentines. I am always so intrigued to see what they come up with as a project.
Two boys. So different. So wonderful in opposite ways.

With the demise of the tree came the unfortunate chore of chopping up the fallen chunk. Since it was in our yard we got to be lazy about it.

Zane is very outgoing and friendly. He has a lot of friends in kindergarten and I can only imagine him being quite the life of the party. He certainly entertains us at home. Today I was asking him about his Valentine's day party and we were talking about buying valentines and if there was anyone he wanted to give a special one to. He got all shy and embarrassed and said yes. But he was not going to tell me who. It was a secret.
