We had Mid-winter break last week, and spent one day pretending we didn't have electricity. This was also the day Lucy was recovering from a fever, so she stayed on the couch most of the day. Lots of games, books, a fire to keep warm, a dipper instead of a faucet, and chicken and dumplings for dinner in the crock pot (kind of like a pot over the fire, right?)...
A couple days later we went to the Henry Ford Museum, the kids' first time.
We built and flew our own paper airplanes.
We sat in the bleachers with some other "people" and watched a movie about aerial stunt riders. Jane liked the statue she was next to...she thought it was definitely Thomas Edison.
The kids all said this was their favorite vehicle:)
This was not really one of Lucy's favorites, but I made her pick one of the other farm machines, and this was the closest one I think!
In other news, the girls are getting interested in the piano now.
And a random picture of breakfast one morning.
Everyone is healthy now and doing well. And thinking about Spring...
