February 16-22

 I love when I catch a stunning sunrise!
 The boys were playing "throw tennis balls over the roof"--pulled out the baseball gloves for this!  Look how green the wheat field behind the house is getting!
 Of course, most of the tennis balls ended up in the gutter.  Isabella volunteered to get up on the roof. Unfortunately, it would seem it is always a lot easier to get up than to get down.  In spite the encouragement of siblings I ended up having to drive the van over underneath the eave by the garage.  Still hesitant, Isabella lingered until her father came home telling her just to jump onto the roof of the van.  (And that would be reason #763 why I do not drive a very nice or new vehicle . . .). ;o)
 After coming into a bit of money the boys combined what they had for a new Lego kit.  I made the grave error of telling Jackson this Wednesday morning that the Legos would be delivered that day by UPS (we bought them on Amazon).  ALL DAY LONG he window watched and was absolutely beside himself with it taking so long.  They came at 4:00 pm.  It was the longest day of his (and possibly my . . .) life. ;o)
 The day it was actually snowing on one half of the yard but not the other!  It didn't last very long, but it was the weirdest weather!
 A picture is worth a thousand words . . . 
(a whole blog post on this when I get around to it--such a tease I know!!) ;o)
Marissa got to participate in "Sing Around Nebraska" this year and just loved it.  I was quite impressed by these 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students from surrounding schools--they did such a good job!  Getting to be a part of a choir this year has been wonderful for her and given her so many fun opportunities.

This one is just full of all kinds of goodness!! :)

That sunrise picture is stunning along with the 1/2 cloud 1/2 clear sky.

I'm feeling your pain on the late arrival of the UPS truck. Many an afternoon has been spent in angst, watching out the window for an Amazon/UPS order. *Why* does the truck always come late when you're anticipating something but it comes at 9:15 when the neighbor gets something?? ;)

And *of course* super-duper excited about the packing tape picture. Can't wait for your post about that to fill in all the details!

WOW--amazing snow weather. And I'm giddy over the packing tape (and tape gun?) firing glad the roof rescue went okay. :)
