We’ve been snowshoeing and cross country skiing, most recently with my sister and Mom!
We’ve been sledding.
We celebrated the New Year with Chris’ parents who came all the way out to see us!
We’ve gotten back into the ninja class and our nature classes. Here we have Gavin doing the spider jump/climb, Gavin running up the curved wall, Gavin swinging on the giant wheel, then Lilah swinging from the smaller wheels, Lilah doing the spider jump/climb up to the bar at the top, Lilah hanging upside down.
It’s been snowy and cold out but still beautiful. I have been enjoying getting out, even though it’s hard to get motivated to get out the door unless we’ve made plans. So we’ve made lots of plans to get out!
We’ve been tracking animals by looking at prints in the snow. Here are tracks from a rabbit, tunnels from a vole, another vole track that looks like it just leaped into the snow and made a print of itself before tunneling away, a deer print and a squirrel print.
We’ve been reading The Complete Farside and the Wings of Fire books.
We’ve been looking at the golden ratio in nature and drawing it with our compasses.
Gavin’s been working on setting up a raspberry pi with camera on his 3D printer so he can watch and adjust it remotely.
Lilah’s been drawing a portrait of her new Dungeons and Dragons character, a deer ranger character.
I’ve been dreaming of sunshine and warmth but enjoying the sparkling snow and the quiet of winter.
