It's been a really busy week around here! With Easter over, the kids headed back to school :) We didnt have Aleah very much this week, so Annika and I had lots of time together :)
On Wednesday we all went for haircuts. :)
Annika was first. Before, she had her hair in a braid and it seemed SO long to me! She waffled on wanting shorter hair but she opted for a trim. Im glad LOL! Someone keeps long hair!
Annika had to stand on the chair to have her trim because her hair was very long :)
It's not a lot of change afterwards. But its alot more tidy and straight on the back :):)
Still very long :)
Holly had a big change! Her hair was wavy from the braids she had in night before. It looked a lot fuller than normal :)
Holly got a Bob cut although it's not as short as she wanted it. We might have to go have it done shorter. LOL
It's a style apparently she likes.
Taylor had a trim and there was very little difference. She sat under the dryer while I had mine done. There arent any good photos of mine.
On Thursday Annika and I met Beth, Jake, and Anna at the park. It was a little cold to stay there too long so we took the kids to Playgroup in Old barns, then had lunch with Nanny and the boys. We wasted a bit more time here before School was over.
These little Rule Breakers are flaunting the rules! No eating on the couch, and no DOGS on the couch! I think it's official; we've no control.
On Thursday the girls started Swimming lessons again :) Yay. They arent at the same time now, Annika goes at 405 (that's not right after school "sigh") and the other 3 go at 440. So we spend almost all of Thursday afternoon right til about 530 at the pool. Yay.
Someone in the classes before threw up in the small warm pool, so all of the lessons were in the big cold pool, including the littlest kids! Annika's class wore life jackets.
Annika is in Sea Turtle again. Until she gets to be 6 years old she stays in the preschool program.
I dont actually think she can advance very far into the older levels in the preschool program.
She got to take off from the rope for her first time! She didnt hang on very well but she loved it!
Holly is in Swim Kids 2, and she seems very comfortable there. She did everything her teacher asked her to do. Being in the big pool was a bit harder for them, but she could touch bottom at the low end and that made her feel a lot better.
Taylor is in Swim Kids 4, and she's really good at it :) they didnt seem to have much space but she and the 3 boys in her class did lots of things.
Their teacher has been there forever and he's really very good. :/
Holly's class did lots of jumping into the water. At this point in the pool the water is over their heads. They all survived it :)
Holly's teacher has been one of my stampin up "students" for a couple of years. I always wondered if she would teach one of my kids LOL
The kids are all really happy to be back in swimming lessons.
Friday morning we woke up to more snow and a day off school because of it. It didnt really end up being too bad but with the snow and freezing rain, they didnt send the kids to school.
All the GOOD snow photos are stuck on my other camera. Ive had another mishap with that camera, it seems someone crushed the end of the computer cord and I cant download the pics. "sigh"
Saturday I went to New Glasgow with some friends and we got some new scrapping toys! LOL Then I had a class at night. I think as soon as I left the house on Sat morning Scott left to take the kids to his mothers' house. "SIGH". Then as soon as I left Sat night he sent Holly off to a hockey game.
They were sleeping when I got home.
I spent WAYYY too long watching Mare Stare. Im thoroughly hooked. This is a horsey site where at the moment, people are posting WebCam's of their Mares who are due to foal. Ive been keeping track since a mare in Cape Breton was posted, but she's one of thousands so it's great fun to watch :)
There were 3 mares foaling last night, one who Ive been watching for well over a week. I saw all three within 5 minutes of each other (ok maybe not that close but it felt like it) and although it was neat, i could not believe how fast people were to interfere! OMG! Did Animals not have babies before humans came along to haul the little things out? ANyway around 2 am I wandered off to bed and got up too early this morning. LOL Scott's gone off to hockey now and I am supposed to bring up the rear and haul all the kids there because HE told them I would.
The last thing I want to do is sit in a cold rink.
