It seemed like the holidays (specifically, the kids being home from school) lasted really long, but now that they’re over, it seems like they happened a long time ago.
Anyway, we squeezed in a few more fun things. Such as swimming. This first picture is before we could convince Orrin to get into the water. He did eventually, though. I took the little camera and I hate how awful most of the pictures turned out—I’m so glad I have a nice camera. Happy happy. But these are cute anyway.
Ethne holding up one of her melty beads creations. I liked her hair that day.
Ethne with her Learning to Read book. I can’t believe how much faster she’s progressing with having been doing it consistently each day for the last week and a half. Just goes to show (I’m LOVING our charts!!!). She does really well when she doesn’t get distracted and go off on a tangent (which happens every other word). ;)
And another day we went to find a geocache. I picked the first one, but it was a lot higher in elevation than I anticipated, and covered in snow and skiers. So, we figure we’ll go back to that one another time, and we quickly found one on the way home that was kinda fun.
Daddy and Orrin.
As usual in Switzerland, there was nothing remotely good inside. But that’s okay.
Now the kids are back in school and the rest of this month is, to me at least, just a matter of waiting. I finally cleared out a couple of my drawers and filled them with baby clothes and blankets. I went to the store and got yummy-smelling baby shampoo and lotion, nursing pads, more diapers, and soothers. Too bad you can’t pick up a name at the store.
