A Proud Defining Moment!

We had Asa's IEP meeting yesterday for going into 2nd Grade! He knew we were going to be coming to school for a meeting, so yesterday he told his teacher he wanted to make a video of himself reading to share with us! It took everything in me not to break down into happy proud tears. A truly defining moment! The video was a little longer and had to be shortened because of file size, but the best part was in the last frame, he corrected himself from saying play and to reading kick!

I know I neglect you tired old blog. My last post was in the grip of winter. Spring is slowly (very, very slowly) blooming and we did go in search of warmer weather. We returned to the sun warmed beaches of Emerald Isle NC for April vacation. I think it's totally worth the 14 hour drive... The memories are worth it (uh-em Jenna).
This hole was already here, it delivered days of enjoyment!

Snow Day

We had SNOWFUN yesterday! Cousins came over for a sledding party. Nothing like a cardboard boat covered in duck tape and pulled behind the Ranger!

 The adults had fun too being pulled and purposely dumped! :) :)

Today Asa had a snow day, it is the 3rd snow day in 3 weeks!

January Hibernation

I feel like the bear from "Bear Snores On" by Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman. I want to stay in bed because it is too cold outside, I want to hibernate in the house! Anything below 15 degrees is just crazy and average highs for the past 2 weeks have been mostly this! Though the days are getting longer and the sun just a little bit brighter in the sky, there is hope that Spring isn't too far away! I'm not blogging much because I'm frozen in Northern New England... We did not have the massive snow that hit the coast but it would of been fun to play in :) :) We only have about 6 inches on the ground. Looking forward to February, one month closer to Spring...
