Swimming and Snow Day(s) (And some V-day pics too)
In an effort to give ‘lil q some exposure to things, we’ve been taking her to swimming lesson – which sadly means I have to get in the pool too. Sunday started the new classes and when we were getting her dressed in his sweat suit we realized just how much she’s grown – I mean we see her every day so sometimes it takes something to remind us how much she’s changed. When I looked at her, I was shocked at how much like a little girl she looked. Here take a look:

As some of you know, I live in the DC area. Wednesday/Thursday of this week we had a snow storm! And while we’re not as bad as some parts further south, snow seems to bring out the chicken littles in far too many people. No, you won’t be snowed in for days on end. Yes, the stores will get new supplies of milk, bread, eggs and even toilet paper so you do not need to rush out and buy as much of said ‘staples’ as you can carry.

Thursday dawned and we woke to a blanket of snow. Yep they got it right this time. A couple weeks ago ‘lil q got her first real taste of snow. It must have made a good impression on her, because when she woke up she told me we were going to play in the snow.
This was what I call ‘good snow.’ You know, the kind that packs well. Perfect for making a snowman:
Not that this has anything to do with snow days, but I had to put in a few Valentine’s Day pictures:
