A Whole Lot of Firsts

Life is anything but quiet with two kids and a whole community of college students outside our door. Sometimes at night we've joked that there is a ringing in our ears from the absence of noise. The buzz means that the kids are sleeping well, that Reshma's English is improving daily and that our kids are interacting lots. We're so thankful to be a month in and see so many improvements. Here are a few highlights from the last few weeks.

Sibling love and learning with Alphabet Go Fish (Reshma's favorite game)

Sibling photos, take one...

...and two...

...and as good as it got that night!

First four wheeler ride! 

Feeding horses

Enjoying warm days before they gave way to this...

First snow and lovin' it!

Becoming a fan of bowling

First zoo/road trip. She's not used to long drives and car sickness adds to the difficulty!

And, first bonfire with s'mores! She loved the fire but not the sweets. Wish the rest of her family felt the same way! (See Levi cradling his beloved hot chocolate?!)

There's a blizzard in the making outside our window and a day off of school which means there will be lots more snow pictures to come! Then, only two days to Valentine's! Happy, happy Wednesday!

So happy to see an update -- what a lot of new experiences Reshma is having! We have some carsickness issues too, and haven't tried a longer drive yet. It looks like she continues to be such a curious, adventurous, dear girl!

I love all of your pictures!! The one with her riding the sled with daddy is so cute! She looks so excited.
