March Break fun!

March break snuck up on me this year.
I usually feel stressed about what to do with the kids, but this year they seemed quite content to stick around the house. We did have a few trips out shopping and to the mini mall. The beginning of the week was snowy and even though we are all sick of winter by the time March break gets here, you could see the beauty

 Next day it warmed up and almost all the snow melted.
A puddle on the lawn this time of year always gives us hope for a skating rink.
It didn't happen right away, so we turned our attention to our seldom used pellet gun.
Country Boy was a great shot and hit the target every time! Isn't he too cool in his crocks? LOL
(In all fairness, we were all fashion statements on this day ... it was laundry day!)
Big Country Girl giving Little Country Girl a lesson. This was her first time!

Later in the week we were lucky to have a few cold days and our puddle turned into a skating rink.
The skating lessons are paying off!
A couple of great days to skate!
The week ended off with me falling and hitting my head.
A trip to the ER and 5 staples later, I am as good as new ;)
Back to school for the kids today.
2 days until spring and it can't come soon enough for me.
Gardening is so much safer!


  1. Hope you are feeling better after that fall Netty.
    Winter is coming back to our region with a snow storm for the next couple of days. Can't wait for garden season.

  2. Crocs in the snow and staples in the head - you all deserve to be named the TRUE CANADIAN FAMILY!
