Homeschool Sledding......again!

Nana and Bumpa (Pat's parents Sherri and Bill) very graciously let the homeschoolers come and invade the place for another awesome day of sledding. It was a beautiful day in the 40's and 50's and lots of sun! This time it was a little on the warm side for running snow machines so we didn't have the escort service up and down the sledding hill, but we did get a few rides in!

Ethan and Bumpa headed to the hill!

Mollie and Nana hanging out at the bottom.

Lauren and James getting ready

Emmy thought it would be fun to pull Lily around in the little sled, not sure if she was enjoying it as much as Emmy though!

Mollie's first snowmachine ride!

James had a great time "surfing" down the sledding hill! Check out the video I took of him in action. He actually was able to stay standing the whole time because the snow was so sticky.

Ethan and Pat are up to no good here by the look of their faces, I think snowballs had something to do with it!

Smile! I got this group photo at the top of the sledding hill.

Pat snapped this one of Mollie and I enjoying the sun. We actually went down the hill in a sled like this (thankfully no one caught that on film).

Emmy was sporting these cute little "noggin knots" (as I call them), they stayed in nicely even with a hat on!

As you can see from these pics it was really sunny and warm! The boys actually got really bad sunburn on their faces. Of course stupid me never thought of sunscreen and the boys were out there from 10:00am to 4 or 5:00pm!!
We made snow paints (food coloring and water) and put it in spray bottles for Emmy and the other little ones. The big kids actually enjoyed them a lot too!
Emmy and Beckah thought it would be fun to add some color to the snowman Nana built with some of the kids.
Dominic and Emmy making the snowman pretty!!
