Hide and Seek

Hide and seekAudrey came upstairs to ask if we had seen Megan.  We realized that we had not for quite a while.

Following her downstairs, Audrey showed us Megan hiding in the closet. We “called” for her and “tried to find her”, but she refused to move or make any noise.

I am not sure how long she stayed hiding in the closet, but it was probably 20 minutes before she finally came out.

 

Snow Day

Yesterday was our first snow day of the season.  The kids made a sledding hill and snowmen.  Andrea walked across the street with me and then got attacked with snowballs by the neighbors.  Mark enjoyed helping with snowmen that kept “running away”.  It was a great start to winter!

Fairy Door

FairyDoorAfter church on Sunday, it was beautiful out.  We decided to go the park for a picnic.  We grilled sausages, ate s’mores and just enjoyed the wonderful weather.

We wanted to walk, so we explored the woods by the river.  Audrey discovered a little door in one of the trees.  It was fun to imagine all the possibilities on how it got there.

Soccer Weekend

GirlsAndrea has enjoyed playing soccer this fall.   She plays outside defense (right fullback).  Her job is to keep the ball away from the goalie.

It has been fun watching her improve this year.  Andrea does not mind falling too much and is willing to run into situations where others may hold back. She has been practicing running faster and is able to overtake opponents more often. She also likes to come up to mid line from an angle and kick the ball down field.  AndreaHer kicking is getting stronger and she can send the ball flying much better than she did at the beginning of the season.

This weekend, Andrea had her fall soccer tournament. It was a long weekend for Andrea, but she enjoyed herself. Her team did a wonderful job!  They were undefeated for all their games (8-1, 2-1, 2-0 and 2-1) and came home with first place trophies in their division!
