Two snow days in the past week. Ally has had fun sledding after each storm and one day Becky took her and Olive to our local hill.
A recent snow day Ally went over to Sophocles house and played monopoly with him and another classmate Lizzie. Ally beat them!!!
Sophocles has dwarf hamsters. They are tiny and he has a lot of them. He started with 2, then there were 6 babies and then 5 more babies. Yes 13 hamsters. He has since given 1 away and 1 died a tragic sad death so there are currently 11.
Ally baked cookies.
And did the dishes after. She did about 90% of the baking and clean up.
Cookies got a thumbs up.
We have been coloring. Hopefully you have received a valentine from us by now.
Ally wanted to write a note to her English teacher, who has recently experienced some family tragedy.
It brought tears to Becky and my eyes that Ally wrote such a thoughtful note to her teacher. She did it all on her own, with no prompting or discussion from us on what to say.
I admit it felt like a parenting win.
