Sometimes it’s mutual comfort. Both of our cats and our dog (occasionally) enjoy petting, and the lone gerbil adores attention all day long, from anyone. I used to sit on a fence rail and pet horses to calm down after a hard day, too.
Back from a long weekend in Moab – and so much exercise + outdoor time, I can hardly believe it! We’re back in action at home tho, waiting out the snow, because we’re ramped up and ready for spring now.
We’re on the move again this week with ALL the parties! Bday parties, Super Bowl parties, sleepover parties, and a Valentine’s Day party to remember – with sack races + balloon friends (for some reason), sweets + silliness.
The kids planned their Valentine’s Day party this week and then celebrated early with cupcakes they decorated and a pile of cheers, including pyramids + a few burritos! We had friends stay with us a few days and I have zero photos of their sleepover, dance parties or movie sessions.
We got together with George’s Kansas City Chiefs crew for the first time all year, and it was great to catch up + see all the kids playing together again. Then our Wildlings groups resumed + we met some new people!
This week we learned to use the snowblower + strengthened our ankles with some ice skating + sledded 3x + took a melting snow walk with an RC car spinning slush at everyone.
Happy Holidays to everyone! We’re in a full embrace with our free time, currently. Back in 2022!
We’re excited to do a full moon hike tonight with friends and full-shift into winter with a solstice celebration next week. It’s on – welcome holiday season!
Whew. We’ve begun embracing the season and starting all the holiday crafts and our seasonal read-aloud, all great things!
