I had the chance to make a few cards last week. They were just quick and simple cards , but it felt good to get in my craft room and make something. The first one was for a co-worker turning 60 and the next card was for my friend's birthday. Plus I cut up a photo calendar my Mom made for me so I could use the pictures to Smashbook with but that is as far as I got. At least next time I want to craft , I will photos ready.

Well I did not plan on being off for a week or 10 inches of snow one day and 3 inches the next with it turning to ice on the 3rd day. I had to keep Jack on task as far as school is concerned plus keeping up with the cooking and cleaning , the dog and playing in the snow. Let's just say I am exhausted and so ready to get back to work. We have had fun though. We have played , measured the volume of water in snow , the salt and ice cube string experiment, made snow cream , made snow art (with water , food coloring and squirting guns ), caught snowflakes on dark paper and examined them with the magnifying glass ,boiled water and threw it in 1 degree weather and watched as it turned to ice.

Valentine's day homeschool party was awesome. In between lessons we did, a valentine word scramble, a love word maze , cool candy science experiments , a conversation heart sling shot , Q tip blow dart game and puzzles. Then we baked a valentine heart cake and made cherry sprite drinks. Normally Jack gets a 20 minute video game break after each of the 3 two hour sections ,but today he had fun valentine activities for breaks and he did not complain once about missing his electronic devices . It was a successful day. Then we all exchanged valentine's. Jack draw me a beautiful robot picture and gave Jason some caramel popcorn. I got Jason a massage gift certificate. I got candy , flowers, a new camping lantern and a sweet letter from Jason. He has always been great at sweet letters.

It is a beautiful 60 degrees and sunny compared to the below 30's and windy that it has been. We adopted our wonderful dog Maya 2 years ago (they thought she was 2 already) so we celebrated her 4th birthday today. She had her shots this morning. To make up for the shots she received bacon , a new bone and a new ball oh my. We played outside with the new ball for a while then we went on a 1 mile walk through the neighborhood . I was a little disturbed by what I saw. On our walk we found 2 pairs of used and dirty underwear , a pair of socks , a shirt , a pair of pants and several empty beer cans and Gatorade bottles. I was a little scared and kept expecting to see naked and intoxicated people running around , but it never happened. Lol. I bet there is a wild story there.
