A Little Bit of This and A Little Bit of That

We went to Ellensburg last weekend to visit the Erickson Family. We had so much fun! When we got to Ellensburg on Friday the boys and Ellee had a blast playing baseball, riding bikes and driving......Outside!

Ellee didn't mind at all being the only girl....she found plenty to do!

On Saturday we went to visit the Central Campus and the new Student Union Building. Shawn and I are so jealous! It is amazing. They have a climbing wall inside!!!! Our tuition at work!

Having a snack in the SUB

We also went bowling

Cheering on the boys

Watching and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting for the bowling ball to hit the pins!
Crue won with a 115......he's 3! Can you beat that?

Sunday we woke up to SNOW! The boys headed out right after breakfast. Thank you Leah for having extra snow clothes.....I guess I didn't think to pack that stuff considering it's the middle of March!Disney DVD Bingo with LeahThe Animals are loose!

Our ride home

THE PASS!!!!! Will it ever end?

Thank you Leah and Brady for a great weekend! Can't wait to see you again! We'll bring the Botta Box!

School Work

Jackson is loving learning right now.....we actually turn it into a game. Here he is counting the dots on a die, finding the number on the sheet and tracing over the dotted number. He has the numbers "race" to see which one will win. (The column with all the numbers traced)

Concentrating & working hard!
Look who's ready to learn!

Miss Independent

Look what I saw when I came downstairs....I had a feeling she was "up" to something! She climbed the barstool onto the counter, grabbed an apple and got in her seat! Look at those little mouse size bites out of the apple. We have NEVER given either of our kids an entire apple, Ellee doesn't even get the skin! Shawn said he gave her apple slices at lunch today and she wouldn't even eat them. Ha!
Ellee has turned into quite the climber. She keeps getting braver and braver!!!!!
