Today was an icy day - I love it when the ice forms on the windows in pretty pattern.  I don't love it, however, when we have to go out in it.  We had our homeschool co-op planning meeting for our second session.  It doesn't start until March but we like to get things planned out.  Our leader is wonderful - she gets us going and keeps us on track.  We have a lot of fun classes and activities planned for the spring session and I'm sure the kids will love it!

 
These cold, icy days are making me very excited about our annual Florida trip in just a few short weeks.  We take the boys down to visit grandma and grandpa and it's my excuse to spend a few days at Disney.  The boys have fallen as much in love with Disney as I.  It is the one week of the year that there are no outside distractions - no phones, no school (although the learning is priceless while we're there), no church responsibilities (we love what we do but it is nice to have a little break), no telemarketers, etc etc etc.  For one short week, the world stops spinning and we are in our happy place.  We visit with characters, roam the 11 countries of EPCOT, go on safari in Africa, spend a little time in Asia, eat yummy food, swim, walk a million miles, and just spend time together!!!  Grandma and Grandpa usually spend a day with us and this year, Uncle Tom might come down while we're there too!!  The photo above was taken last year on Primevil Whirl at Animal Kingdom - the boys don't know it yet but it will be closed this year for refurbishment.  This is one of our most favorite rides so that will be disappointing but everything else we love will be open so we can't complain, too much ;)
