That's all it was to Isobel yesterday.  Grandma asked Isobel "what did you learn in school today".  "Stuff" she said so passively.  Ugh.  We started learning about the Netherlands in our geography unit so I planned all weekend for it.  That included a special chocolate toast breakfast, windmill and pinwheel art projects, map work, Gouda cheese sampling, and an Anne Frank video.  Plus her math with coloring, new language book she was looking forward to, and language arts activities that she thinks are so funny.  But it was all just "stuff".  ;-)

Everett earned 2nd place at the Cub Scout Pinewood Derby.
Isobel has been playing soccer with cousin Rhylee.

It is so cool to watch our children cheer each other on.

Ian just finnished a short break from work. He was home for two weeks, so we took advantage of the time. Ian went ice skating with us. He helped with school. He helped Everett with Scout stuff.
And Abigail? She has had a crazy sleep pattern of waking every two hours at night and 45 min into each nap. Ugh! But she has begun to like toys and can roll over from her stomach to her back. She weighs 13 lbs, has more hair than either of her siblings had at this age, is talking A LOT.
