Successful Yardsale & New Carpet

*Well, maybe a few of you out there are wondering how we did with the yardsalw this past weekend. I would say between the four of us we made about $200! I got rid of a lot of things, and for that I am so excited!


**And a new bit of information, today we are getting our downstairs carpet replaced before we put the house on the market in the beginning of April. The guy is coming today while we are at school, so Tim and I are hoping that he doesn't clean us out... we think we can trust him.... hmmm.. .maybe i should go home on my break today...

My New Favorite Game:Nintendo Wii

Last night we had a caregroup video game fellowship time. I have to admit, i was not so thrilled at first. But then I tried this new nintendo Wii game and I LOVED IT!

As seen in the pics below, you use controller to play sport games. We played golf and bowling. You actually swing your arms the way that you would in playing the real sport! It's pretty amazing! It was actually a good workout too :O)
I usually do not like video games, but this one is an exception! I could totally see this one in my home :O)

Snow Day At GCA

On February 15th, the fourth grade had a "Snow Day"all day at school.
***Basically, we never get snow days in VA, so we planned one ourselves!

I covered my walls and floor with white sheets and put a now mural on the board. There were even "Snow balls on the ground"

Below are both fourth grade classes watching "Attack of the Avalanche" and also the fourth grade teachers in their PJ's --yup, we all got to wear our pajamas!

We had a snow ball fight with paper

We had a snowman building contest out of toilet paper and construction paper!

We made little mini snowmen out of socks...
We made igloos outof sugar cubes....

We ate snowball shaped sandwiches and served hot chocolate...
