It's Tuesday (and snow day #2 for the week) so I thought I'd play catch up.
Wyatt's basketball is officially over for the year. His team had a great season, and they came in second in the playoffs. Wyatt learned the tough lesson that losing stinks, but second place isn't too bad. :) All of my game pictures ended up blurry (I guess there was just too much action for me and my poor camera) but here are a few that were ok.
|We'll say he made this one.|
|Getting his "Best Defensive Player" award.|
|Papa, Amelia, and Lily were awesome cheerleaders!|
|The Bulldogs--very tired after the championship game|
It was a brutally cold and snowy month with most of our time spent inside. As a plus, we spent a lot of time with the Tuels in February!
|At the Wow Factory again. Wyatt is making a napkin holder to look like a taco. Lily is doing her thing. The Tuels were on the other side of the table.|
|The older boys playing Madden. The younger boys NOT standing in front of the TV screen.|
Other February events:
- We went to Dinosaur Days, a traveling robotic exhibit that I thought was overpriced for what it ended up being. Nonetheless, the kids LOVED it so I guess it was worth it!
|We saw our friends there and had a great time playing together.|
- Wyatt, his friend Brodee, and I went to Olive Garden and then to see the Lego movie one day. It was fantastic! I would go back tomorrow to see it again. A few days later, Brodee and his grandparents took Wyatt to Wisp for some tubing fun. It was about 60 degrees that day (WOW!). Wyatt loved it--I think we're going to have to plan a tubing trip next winter.
- We bought land! We are now in the midst of doing everything else before we actually break ground. (Planning, planning, planning, budgeting, planning, and planning.) The search for a new home has been an interesting and stressful one, and I'm afraid to actually buy into the fact that we are making progress. I keep waiting for the bottom to drop out of this somehow. For now, however, we are full speed ahead! It is a great piece of property--2 acres--and closer to Fairmont where we both work.
