Playing, Drawing and Awakening

We are getting back to the normal things around here after the holidays. While there is not too much snow on the ground right now (though more is coming tomorrow), the kids have been enjoying playing in the snow.
The Christmas tree makes a great car.
 Joash was very eager to get back to school after having been away from school for a few weeks. Here is a picture of a cow he drew on his first day back.
 His teachers also asked him to draw a pictures of something God will help him do this year. Here is what he drew and what he tried to write was "me reading," meaning God will help him to learn how to read.
And Mataya has had a few interesting morning awakenings lately. This morning when I got her up, I realized she had a bloody nose during the night. That is a scary thing to see, but thankfully it must have just happened, so it was well contained to one area and washed out of her sheets very easily.

Another morning a few weeks back, I thought the same thing had happened when I got Mataya up in the morning. But upon closer inspection I figured out that it was not blood, but Silly Putty. Both Joash and Mataya got Silly Putty for Christmas. Mataya also got a little pouch. I didn't check what was in the pouch when I put her in bed and I guess her Silly Putty was in there. And it was everywhere in her bed. On her sheets, blankets, pillow, pjs, her stuffed pig and in her hair. It was a much longer clean up that day and we still see remnants of the silly putty in different places.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.
