Project 365: 27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34

February 8, 2009, Day 27: The kids had such a fun time doing there Valentine's for their classmates.

February 9, 2009, Day 28: I completed my first scrapbook page in ages. It's my passion and I know I need to find more time for it. I love preserving memories.

February 10, 2009, Day 29: Bathtime around this house is looked forward to with relish. Usually it's a quick shower but sometimes the kids get a good soak.

February 11, Day 30: Trips to the grocery store are common around here. I got this shot of Aaron and Jonah in the cart outside of Costco. So sweet.

February 12, 2009, Day 31: Jonah is getting so fast. He's grabbing his feet and putting them in his mouth and rolling over and just making me sad that he's not a baby, baby anymore.

February 13, Day 32: Aaron has "COOL HAIR". That's what he told me. He's doing his hair by himself now, he's a big boy! I love the facial expression.
February 14, Day 33: Tessa was invited to go iceskating with her friend Kate. I too got out there on the ice and it brought back memories from when I was a child. I grew up in Illinois and we spent DAYS skating a the local ponds. My feet sure hurt when we were done though. Definitely going back as a family, but Travis said NO WAY was he getting skates on.
February 15, Day 35: What a strange mom called to tell me that my paternal grandmother had called her (Last time they talked ????) I don't know how she found my mom.
She called to tell her that my "father" passed away last Sunday. What a jumble of emotions. It's not like he was ever there for us. I think he left when I was two or three. We saw him once when I was around 8. He didn't wan't to get in touch with us to tell us he was dying of cancer, I guess he was ashamed. I have a half sister and think it might be nice to get to know my grandmother (both my maternal grandparents have passed). We'll see what the future brings.

That is really odd about your father. I do think it could be an opportunity to find out more about your grandmother. Sorry?

Wow quite a week! How do you mourn for someone's loss that you have already mourned? That would be cool if you got to know your grandma. Love the scrapbook page!
I LOVE ice skating. I grew up in MI and we had a neighborhood park with a pond in it that we used to skate on. I want to take Kaden to try it out with me. Matt won't skate- his ankles are too weak for it- so he can watch the baby. :)
