Getting back into the swing of things

We are getting back into the swing of things after our "extended" Spring Break. Thanks to snow and ice, the boys didn't have to go to school the Thursday before Spring Break, and didn't have to start school until 10 the Friday before Spring Break.

We didn't do much over Spring Break. It rained most of every day. Not just rain on every day. Rain most of every day. It was gray, but not really cold.

The main accomplishment was painting Little Elvis' room. He's now in Cheese Puff's room, and Cheese Puff and Baby Plum are rooming together. We have been surprised at how the new rooming situation was welcomed, and at how well it seems to be going. I hope that by typing this, I'm not jinxing us.

Anyway, these pictures are from last month.
My sweet Baby Plum was sick. Look how sweet he is napping in his chair covered in Mommy's Snugli and facing a heater? I love the hand placement. He may not want to admit it, but this child is so much like his mommy. They mainly have their Daddy's ability to not mind cold, but every once in a while, Baby Plum likes to get snuggly like his Mommy.
I'm not sure if I posted this, but Little Elvis had to deliver a 3-part report on an important American of his choosing. He chose Thomas Edison, because they share a birthday. He wrote a 1 minute long speech, memorized it, and delivered it. He then did a big board about Edison, and dressed in a "tux" for that portion. He was supposed to answer questions.

We mainly found pictures to print off from the web, but he did draw a couple of things. He wanted to use a phonograph picture for the "o" in Thomas and a lightbulb for the "I" in Edison. And the tri-pod of the first video camera as the "a" in Alva.

He didn't want to, but he worked hard on this. This child likes to fuss about homework, even though this assignment was right up his alley -- history, speech, drawing, etc.

I'm sorry about the rain over break. Bleh! It's no fun to be house-bound.

Little Elvis's report sounds super! Hoping it will mean the next time is easier.
