Baby Chicks

We now have our first pets, according to Zara. She says the goldfish didn't count. We picked up four baby chicks yesterday at the farm store. Now it's time for M to get to work building the coop! I'm looking forward to fresh eggs and chickens roaming around the backyard this summer.

The Never ending Winter...

 So our first Yakima winter has been snow, ice and more snow. Supposedly "it's not normally like this." Alright. I love the snow, its gorgeous. Especially when the sun is also shining. But I do not need two straight months of it. We have settled into a nice routine with school, swimming lessons and mornings at the gym for Ariana and I. On Fridays, Ariana loves spending the day with her Bebe Jan. I try to get a bunch of work done and volunteer in the girls' kindergarten classroom in the afternoon. Here are some quick January snapshots.

Zara asked, "Is it spring yet?"
