Learning to Sew

 Lulu has been learning to sew.  She loves it and is doing really well.  She's just hand stitching right now.  She can thread her needle, cut her thread, sew a pretty straight even line.  She's working on little blanket that I started a year ago and never finished.  She's been sewing the backing onto it.  It matches a nightgown I made for her last year.  After she finishes this project we will start something new and I think I will introduce her to the sewing machine.  

Our Day

 We have been keeping busy.  We started back to homeshool after a nice Thanksgiving to Christmas break.   
 Lulu made a paper chain to count down to my mom's visit this month.  Only a few to go now!!
 Levi's been working on writing his name and working through a little workbook he has.  
 Lulu's working hard going through her work books.  
 Lego's are a favorite past time here.  
 Ila is growing and doing great. 
 We Skype often with my parents.

Snow Day!!

The past few days it's been snowing. Today was our first day out in it since we have been sick. The kids had so much fun and so did Mark and I.
