A Brief Picture Catch-up

Things have been busy around our house, as I'm sure they have been for most people this holiday season. The addition of two new creatures has certainly been fun. LLSS loves the cats, and when I say love, I mean LOVE! She hugs and kisses and pets and basically pesters them all day long. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be enough to have changed their sleep patterns to not include several romps, fights, chases, etc. during the night.

I am working (you see, very hard right now) on the last lesson for my distance class and hope to have it finished by the end of the weekend so I don't have to think about it during Christmas. I figure I've procrastinated long enough and now is the time. That, and it is due no later than Jan 10.

I've also started tutoring a first grader in reading three days a week after school. It is going well and I am loving direct instruction once again. I never forget how amazing it is, I'm just amazed anew each time it works so well for a student.

Here is LLSS, obviously enjoying her dinner and probably some antics of mine or her dad.
Here is the lovely Handsome Gavin (for Gavin Hill in Sitka).
Here is the beautiful Taz (for the Tazimina River in Nondalton). I think Clare was reading her a story.
This is Christmas Tree Quality Control Team Weiser. Notice the lack of snow. We missed it by a week!
And this is one of my all-time favorite pictures. I just love how happy they both look. The Advent Calendar has been a HUGE hit!
More to come.
