Cabin Fever

The long winter has encouraged lots of creativity when it comes to keeping little ones occupied. Elena found her own way to stay busy yesterday, which I was astonished to find after turning around for just a few minutes! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. She also got to clean up the floor after the fun of coloring on it. God bless whoever invented washable markers.

The winter just keeps lasting and lasting and lasting...

Yesterday morning (April 2) we woke up to this view out our front door:
It's officially the snowiest winter on record for the city of Spokane. We have been told (numerous times) that last year it snowed in June! We've loved having a real winter but are SOOO ready for spring.
