Happy Birthday, GG!!!

The kids and I went to Concordia to surprise my beautiful grandmother on her 88th birthday! We had a great time seeing cousins and catching up. The Minnesota Crum crew & Aunt Peggy were greatly missed though.

iPad Happy!

Do you have an Apple iPad? Do you want an Apple iPad? The PES Library will be getting one very soon thanks to the USD #343 Endowment Association. Each year, they award Innovation in Education Grants and this year my application was selected!

You can read more about it here. I'm sure excited!

Hmmm...what shall we fill our day with?
Might just have a few new ideas up my sleeve. :-)

Demo Day...

We have been wanting to tear out the door & wall that leads to our basement for some time. Now that Talin's new room is downstairs, it became a priority. New carpet comes on 1.31.11 so we spent the weekend making a mess. Well, Jim Turner actually did all the work but we watched & gave our input. :-)

Our SNOW DAY PLAN worked and we've been having a blast at home today!

Enjoying some cocoa to warm up!

Inside play time!

Picnic Lunch!

Check out the local snowfall totals here. I can't believe we got 10" of snow...guess we might need to reduce "the plan" a little!
Rusti & Maggie had some fun in the snow too!
