Day 24

I woke up this morning to a fresh blanket of snow. Even though I had been so happy that most of our snow had melted, I have to admit the new snow was a beautiful sight this morning. The kids played outside for a bit, and Spencer seized the opportunity to raise some money. He is raising money for a World Vision project for school, so he knocked on doors and told neighbours he'd shovel their walks for a $5 donation. He made $20, so he was pretty happy. He has never shovelled snow before today, but he appears to have done a good job. I hope that money makes it to his charity fund and not his iPod Touch fund.

The basketball net

Chloe and her volleyball team won their final volleyball game this morning, which means they finished 3rd in their division.
Neve and Spencer had gymnastics and fencing at the same time as the game; thankfully we have good neighbours who helped us get everyone where they needed to be. The kids had friends over in the afternoon and then all the friends' moms came for a little Happy Hour, and then we went to friends' in the evening. It was a good day. Tomorrow will be a relaxing day ... I hope to get some things done around the house and maybe even read a little while Dale watches a certain football game.

Beautiful snow! And beautiful Neve! That's a very sweet shot!

Way to go in volleyball, Chloe! And very resourceful capitalism, Spencer!
