I am tired of games. I am tired of movies. We haven't done much, but here is a photo recap of January....
Funny how my parents managed to get me safely on the school bus down our long drive way in the country in the DANGEROUS and EXTREME cold when I was little. Funny how the elderly woman at church got to the one room school house pulled by a team of horses in the DANGEROUS and EXTREME cold in her day! (okay.... I will get off my soap box now!)
Marly probably took this photo above of Dean with the I pad while either Mark or I was ignoring them while we worked from the couch or kitchen.
Afterwords, we stopped at Candy Land. I swear, Mark and I BARELY cheated at ALL on the "cleanse". We might have ate like 4 jelly beans.... but it was JUST FOUR!
Dean competed in his first karate match. This was sponsored by PKS Studios. All the various franchise locations/kids could compete. Dean got Third Place in his age and belt level. There were three kids competing. (Lot of Love and Laughs) He forgot his moves/forms mid-way through the routine, and stopped dead! After a few LONG seconds, he picked up where he left off. Oh well... It was his first time!
Finally, this past Saturday, we went to check out the Winter Carnival ice sculptures in Rice Park and the snow sculptures at the State Fair grounds. We were joined by our friend Gavin, who we were baby sitting since his mom is a CPA and it's tax season, and his dad is an RN working his usual shift.
