Time Flies...

Time flies when you are having fun.

We had a wonderful holiday and I am struggling to get "started" with school again. The girls are good about doing a math lesson each day and we've completed some read alouds and watched a few "school" (if you stretch it) movies.

Here's some of what we've been doing:

We got a big snow the week before Christmas (I'm still waiting for it to melt!)

Sarah got a video camera for Christmas! Maybe she'll take some video I can post here...

Rebecca got a bike!

Rebecca made us a lovely maroon throw.

Sarah made us matching Gator blankets.

My dad flew up Christmas night. Then, the Petersons (my cousin Dan's family) stopped by for the afternoon on their way to Maggie Valley. I haven't seen him in probably 9 years. It was his kids first time to see snow.

Some of the Harts (Fred's brother Billy) came up from Florida to see snow (again a first time for the kids), and they got it!

Flat Stanley came to visit from our friends the Thompsons, who live in Tampa. We showed him all around! Pisgah National Forest, Biltmore, Flat Rock Bakery, Carl Sandburg House, Flat Rock Theatre are just a few of the places we went. He got too cold and wanted to go back to Florida!

Skiing at Sugar Mountain is good fun after a big snowfall!
