The last two weeks have been mostly overcast, rainy, and chilly. We kept a fire going in the woodstove and enjoyed a lot of indoor activities, as well as spending some time embracing the spring's fickle weather.

Sylvia made a spotted shark inspired by this photo from the Ocean Conservancy blog.
Ayla made a colorful reef fish inspired by this photo.
We made a lot of origami creations (Camille mostly, though the rest of us got in on it, too).
I even got a chance to go out to a concert with friends for an evening. I danced for about 2 1/2 hours straight. Woohoo!
Not waiting for April (or her showers) to end, we went for a rainy day walk on the last day of the month looking for some of the elusive spring ephemerals at the Kickapoo Valley Reserve.
and enjoyed some simple, nourishing potato soup with ramps and nettles. Everyone of my girls declared it delicious!
more colorful fish!
Ayla likes to create big shapes out of wooden craft sticks and recently started asking how to spell everyone's names.
