Here Lately

The wind is kicking it outside. The backyard toys are rolling around and screen is rattling at the door. Inside we're doing our spring break Idaho style. Not our normal Southern sun and popsicles. We're adjusting though. Lot's of coffee for me and lot's of coloring and legos for the girls. It all works out.

Slowly but surely, we have been wondering hills of our new town. Exploring and seeing what surrounds our little house. There are miles of things to see and we've only just begun.

Our big adventure this week was to the Idaho Falls Museum. They had a dinosaur exhibit set up that the girls have been begging to see since we arrived in Idaho back in January. It was so fun. Small and quaint but very interesting to the little ladies. After seeing the dinosaurs and learning about some of the different types, we came home with little dinosaur eggs of our own. A little lesson of being patient while waiting for these little critters to hatch out.

The girls have been taking turns in the kitchen helping me out. It's the only way I can teach them how to cook. One at a time, one chef at a time. Each day they take turns learning to make something whether it's at lunch time or for supper. I found a little magnet chore chart online that is super cute! It

has been helping a lot with their chores. It reminds them what they have to do and what they've already done. Simple chores but effective.  Little magnets with cute illustrations of their chore...Ellie's favorite chore besides being the chef is the laundry. She's a fan of the buttons and slamming the door.

 We've been trying to make it a point every Friday night to do something as a family. Going out to our most current favorite restaurant, Red Robin. Playing games as a family. Picking a movie or going on an adventure. It's been a lot of fun. Our most recent game is Jenga and boy have we had a blast. Tons of giggles and laughter from all of us. It's been great.

 Hope you all have a great weekend.
