Snow days!

February and March bring many snow days.  And when they can't be outside, the girls, especially Brooke, love to play with Moonlight and Oreo.  Thank goodness for tile floors as these little guys are machines when it comes to poop.

Riding Cody

Eliana is continuing lessons this winter, whenever the weather cooperates.  She has now advanced to riding Cody, a very gentle mustang.  The part I find most interesting about Cody is that he was born in the wild, but you would never know it from his demeanor.

CMEA Conference at the Broadmoor

Adelyne's band got chosen to play at the Colorado Music Educators' Association conference at the very elegant Broadmoor resort yesterday.  The performance was beautiful - especially when you consider all 117 of these kids just started playing their instruments at the beginning of the school year.  The funniest part was that in between the first and second song, Adelyne's trombone valve got caught in her skirt and the conductor had to pause for 20 seconds as she pulled the skirt out.  Luckily she has a sense of humor and was laughing about it afterwards, but pretty nerve wracking at the time.  Adelyne is in the top row, fifth from the left.
