January Instagrams

January dragged for me, although looking back it actually did go by fast. The boys started swimming lessons and got back into the swing of school after a Christmas break. We had friends over and made volcanos! We enjoyed time with our family in Virginia despite the sad circumstances. But I'm glad to see January go. Bring on February! I want to make some Valentine's Day Cookies . . .

A Target date with my girlie and Sophia reading about "Medusa" with yes, a snake wrapped around her neck (above).

Duncan giving his presentation at Classical Conversation below. This was something he was struggling with and I was so proud of him being so brave that day!

Water infused with strawberry and lime. Also, the boys' first maps. Trying to learn the "great circles" and where the continental "blobs" go.

Volcanoes! We did this project and it was great fun. I took "real" pictures of the explosion and will share in a later post.

Funny thing about the picture above left. Sophia isn't allowed to have her paci unless in bed. So one day she wanted to get in the crib around 10 a.m. and curled up and went to sleep. So cute!
