The day of our GOTR 5K was the start of Sunday soccer. Emma and Thomas wanted to do soccer but there aren't any leagues right now, so instead I got them signed up for a skills clinic that is 6 or 8 weeks on Sundays for an hour. This I the same one Isaac did 4 years ago.
HAHA gotta share these funny videos of the kids at the front door.
We had a nice snowy week the middle of November. This was November 14th and it snowed everyday that week. Turkey's across from school.
Monday night BSF.
I enjoy walking down to the lake on my walk home from walking the kids to school.
Thursday night Nov 17th our school had a Smarts+Arts night, there were math games and we got to see the kids artwork in the hallways.
We made it down to the Minnesota Zoo over the weekend on November 19th. Here's the wolf taking a nap.
We stopped in to watch the bird show.
Quick trip by REI on the way home for Kyle to pick up some cycle shoes... we waited in the car. Of course Thomas had to pee... lol.
Oh this was from Church a few weeks prior.
Isaac's instrument for 5th grade band is the trombone. He got to bring it home, however doesn't quite know how to play it yet.
Thanksgiving this year was pretty uneventful and that's okay. I worked Mon, Tue, Wed - had off Thursday then was working again on Friday. So we didn't do much, but planned a full meal for dinner. Lots of playing games after we watched the parade.
Our old neighbor's (one with twins the same age as ours) invited us over for her annual turkey hunt. She puts out feathers around the yards and the kids have a race to find the first 'turkey'. Kinda like Easter Egg hunting. Each kid had a deignated number to find and there were 7 feathers of that number. They were hidden based on age and there were two age groups for the winner categories.
Mary was the first done in the older age group (8+) Everyone got a cookie and candy, Mary's special gift was a gift card.
It was a fun time. Quick little activity to break up the day. We went back home and got our turkey in the oven. Thankfully we were able to get just a 15 pound turkey with Kyle's annual coupon. We had cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, corn on the cob, and homemade rolls. All requests from the kids.
Saturday we went with the neighbor girl twins to roller skate.
And we got some lights up outside. Not entirely happy with it... Maybe next year we'll do something else. I kinda want to get them up I the top of the tree, but we missed our warm window. It's snowing right now as I write this on November 29th, we are suppose to get about 5" or so. I think more the way it's coming down. We had no snow at 6:30am when I let Harpo out then it looked like the below picture when it was time to take the kids to school.
