In the last seven days we have experienced
the typical weather swings of winter in the Sandhills.
So last Friday we enjoyed the last of the snow
with Claire and Evan.
|Beware of Bigfoot. Or is it Mr. Peanut?|
|Signs of deer activity didn't appear|
until the third fourth day of snow.
|Plenty of other tracks of birds and small creatures.|
|I'm not talking about these small creatures, who are|
actually getting quite big! And doesn't Evan look like
a real super hero armed with those boppers?
|The snow may have been disappearing, but that|
led to giant sized icicles. this one was taller than
the kids, and almost as tall as me.
|Grandpa, take the picture before global warming|
takes away all the snow!
|Okay, picture time's over. Giddyap, Grandpa!|
With the snow we had left, I gave the kids
the longest ride available. They had already
had plenty more at their own house.
Less than a week later, the weather was still
cool, but no sign of snow when Brianna and
Hunter showed up primed for play.
|It had probably been at least a year since I tried to|
interest any of the kids in the old Sit-n-Spin. BINGO!
Double Action and oh, what fun!
call out instructions for the spinners. Hunter
did this, too, but not when I did the video.
|Bri is a woman of contradictions:|

|All four of the grandkids are getting more and more|
interested in letters and words, And TALKING!
|Remember the not-so-long ago days when I pulled|
the kids down to the stream? Today, they insisted
on doing the pulling. Purely for exercise, since they
had no passengers, but what a couple of workers!
That's a long walk!
|At the stream, we did the closest thing to ice-fishing|
that we could: hockey stick fishing.
|I got one, I got one! But you should have|
seen the one that got away!
Here's how it works:
Bottom line: any kind of weather, WE GOT FUN!
