Playing in Color

Today we went to the Colors for Kids 5K run, they do it once a year. They give you one or two bags of powdered chalk and you decorate yourself and then you run and you get colored all over. It was a 5k run, it felt short. We had fun. I hope we do it again. 

Second Soccer Game

On Monday I had a soccer game, we had a tie 4-4. The team we were playing against was good.

We have a game today at 6:30 at Goshen College. We will be on field 5 on the opposite side of the bleachers.

Hope to see you there!

Alpaca Shearing

Angora Goat

Yesterday, We helped our neighbors, the Beers, shear their alpacas; another family showed up with their angora goats. This year I swept the pads and brought in the alpacas. Megan took in Finn, she likes him a lot. The goats took three times as long as the alpacas.

We had fun and hope to do it next year.

Today we made a sledding hill on our porch steps. We did a lot of work to make the hill, but we had fun. We are letting the sledding hill sit over night so we can play some more.

Climbing A Tree

Hanging on

We were going through pictures and found these. It is too cold for climbing, but it was a fun memory and I wanted to share.

In April, I got to climb a tree a different way. It was fun! I was a little scared though. I had fun and would like to do it again.

I wish we still had a climbing tree in our front yard.  None of the trees in the woods are really good for climbing.

SNOW!

IMG_9745.AdrianToday is the first snow of the year (2016 that is.) We went to Oxbow park and went sledding, it was fun! I went sledding backward and face-ward. The sled that I used was the one that went the farthest but one of the slowest. Mark taught us “that gravity pulls things down” and “a body in motion tends to stay in motion until acted upon by the deep (hopefully) snow.” Then we took a walk and played in the field. After that we went home and drank hot cocoa. We had fun!
