Happy!

James is fiiiiinally home!!!  Two weeks apart felt like an eternity, I think mostly because, well, I missed him, but I’ve also been sick for now almost three weeks straight.  I have come to my own diagnosis of either viral bronchitis or walking pneumonia – both of which don’t necessarily need antibiotics….I know I’m on the mend as each day I can breath a little better and have less coughing, but still fighting something……I avoid the doctor’s office at all costs…I must be VERY ill to bring myself there….I’m there enough with our two little girls through cold and flu seasons…

James’ tri camp was yet again another huge success with many happy campers.  I’ll post a video in the next few weeks of all the fun they had.

I had to take these pics today.  Annika is growing up and is becoming such a big, independent girl.  She does her chores every day, including making her bed.  Daddy brought her a big Hello Kitty from Florida, and she proudly added it to her collection on her bed.  She also gets her bedtime snack ready after we’ve read Selena her bedtime stories.  Annika calls her snack “poo cereal” haha…That is my doing since she has a little trouble in that area…fiber is her friend ;)

March Break Outings

Swimming, Waterloon Region Museum, Moose Winooski’s and Mapletown Farm filled the last few days.  Lots of fun, despite this lingering cold I have….hopefully the rising temps next week will rid this crazy thing!

The old railway track was preserved right through the middle of the museum…Selena wasn’t too sure about the glass floor!

March!

It’s already 10 days into March, crazy!  The temps hit above 10 degrees today, so of course we ventured outside this afternoon.  It was so nice to step outside and breathe in a breath of fresh air…instead of breathing in what has seemed like painful icicles…The clock switched forward an hour so I’m attempting to get the girls used to the switch…one hour can be difficult with little girls who like and know their routine schedule!  My mom’s birthday has come and gone, and now the last of the cluster is Jenn’s on March 15.  St. Paddy’s day is Sunday, and I’m looking very forward to having some green beer with my bestest!

Annie helped me plant some veggie seeds today that will be ready to plant in our garden just in time for spring!

Our outing today :) (the snow is deceiving…it’s trying to melt, but there’s so much of it, I think it might take a few days to go bye-bye)
