Today was a snow day after school meaning that all activities were cancelled. The kids were so excited to come home and play in the snow. I love Crystal, the snow lady that Harper, EB and EB's friend made. She is just great!

Rock Climbing

We went rock climbing today and Grandma and Grandpa came to watch. It was great fun for me also as I have never gone and seen them as Peter usually takes some combo of kids. EB can climb up any wall in blink. She is getting ready for Devil's Tower. Fisher did not climb as he wanted to be with Grandma and Grandpa and have them all alone for a few minutes.
EB practicing 5.9 so she can be on the intermediate climbing team.

There she goes up the 5.9.

She did it!

Tate ready to climb

Getting hooked up.

Tate is working hard and EB made it up!

I love the picture Tate made of him and Fisher.  The face on on top is both of them and then there is a picture of them playing soccer.   It is amazing how they are brothers who love each other so very much.  Here they are sleeping together last night. :)

Fun pictures

I was taking pictures off my camera and found a few good ones from the week.
This is Fisher during Art Enrichment.  I was so excited to be in his class and see him focus so intently on his work.  Love this picture!

Harper and EB playing together.  They were working together to blow up the balloons.  If you look closely you can see there is a balloon inside another.  

Love that they spent at least 30 minutes together playing calmly!

A video from Ethiopia

I was so excited today to get a video from Ethiopia. This is a video of Fisher's niece and older brother playing in front of his Ethiopian house. We were also excited that Fisher's family got to see on our searcher's phone our blog. How amazing is it that in Fisher's home in Ethiopia they can visit our blog?

The goat in the video is not the goat that Fisher talks about all the time, it is a new goat.  The goat he loved so very much was sold, there were a few tears shed by Fisher hearing this news and it broke our hearts.

EB can climb!

EB, Fisher and Tate went to Grandma and Grandpa's for the night and EB had to climb her favorite tree. She is so very high up and she climbed there in her boots. She is going to miss the tree when my parents move.

Tate's life from the iPad!

I was cleaning pictures off the ipad and found some of these things on it. Just a little glimpse into Tate's life via the ipad!
