Christmas Break

I know I haven't written much. I plan on doing better in the coming year. This Christmas Break has actually been a little quiet this year. Lynn has been taking the older kids to play Basketball at the Goldendale Middle School with our friend, Bob who coaches a 6th grade team. He has open gym on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the Christmas Break. On the other days of the week, Lynn has been taking them up to the church to play ball in the gym there. I am hoping that all this playing Basketball is improving their game. We will see in a week when they all have games.

For Christmas we gave Daniel and Jacob a Nintendo DSi and a couple of games. Benjamin got a Leap Frog Didj and Samuel got a Leap Frog Tag. All electronics. They like them all and have been using them quite a bit. We make them all exercise and do chores in order to earn their privilege of using these new electronics. I am hoping the Tag will help Samuel with reading and the Didj is actually teaching Benjamin his multiplication tables. I'm not sure Daniel and Jacob are learning anything except maybe cooperation and sharing. :)

Britni for the break has been sleeping in a lot and watching too much t.v. She always pulls out her homework but I'm not sure she has gotten much done. :)

This break would be perfect if I didn't have a cold with a nasty cough that only coughs at night when I want to sleep. Oh Well. I guess we just can't have it all, all the time. :)

I hope everyone else is having a great Christmas Break. Love ya all!!
