We are now completely out of paint in our house!

Check out my new toy. It's a hand me down from dear friends who moved away and left me sad and highly caffeinated.
Some after school play leads to the creation of a new Olympic sport! Helmets optional.

Porter had his first t-ball practice today and was super excited about it. I was amazed to see how quickly he picked things up from the coaches. The team has three dads as coaches and they were all super encouraging and great with the kids; it was a blast to watch.
Tim and Matilda went to visit family in NC for the weekend so Porter wanted me to make sure I took extra pictures and video to share with them. He is clearly his father's son in wanting adequate documentation!

Both the kids came up with creative homemade Valentine projects that were a little labor intensive but turned out quite cute. Thankfully they both stuck with it to help making them, so it wasn't quite a mommy-Valentine-sweat-shop around here. After a trip to Legoland and a viewing of the Lego movie (Go see it right now if you haven't! Really.) this month, Porter was set on a Lego theme. We got creative with a new mold and a old box of busted crayons and made some really fun looking lego crayons.
He hung in there to label most of the 40 packets for school friends, a giant task.
Matilda, renowned by her classmates for a love of reading, settled on making bookmarks.
She wrote "Love Your Books" on the back of each one and signed it. Only slightly silly when you think about how she chopped up books to make them!
Happy Valentine's Day!

Matilda's class got a really fun open ended assignment this week to create something. It could be anything really, just so long as it was creative and told something about yourself. Matilda chose to create her grandpa's farm. It was fun to see all the methods she used to create different aspects. My favorite part is the donkey ears I think, although the orange tractor that looks like a school bus is pretty awesome.
