It often seems like each new time we embark on a new project the girls bring to it new skills and abilities. While preparing our sewing project today, Esme took care of all the ironing.
She did a good job and it was very helpful- results that I still haven’t quite gotten used to!

After a warm season away, we jumped back into the iciest of winter sports- skating.
Despite stellar achievements during last year’s skating season, our ice time got off to a rocky start. Slips, trips and “I don’t know if I remember how to do this-es’ filled our first fifteen or twenty minutes. They sputtered and started and bit by bit their muscles remembered what to do and as their heads got distracted they forgot to worry.
We’re looking forward to yet another winter of skating fun!

One of the other moms brought Mancala to the park today. Unfortunately, the little marbles didn’t come along with the game. That didn’t phase Esme, though! She filled the little cups with tiny wood chips from the playground.
When a girl wants to play Mancala, she wants to play Mancala!
