Halfway Day

Today we celebrated Halfway Day...that means that we have completed half of our required school days for this school year!!!
In celebration, several of our schoolwork-papers were cut short...the teacher announced them to be complete when they were only halfway done.  This one threw the students for a loop at first but they quickly figured it out and got into the spirit of it! :)  Tonight we picked up Bruce from work and then drove to Lake Lanier Islands' Magical Nights of Light, seven miles of lights displays along the shores of Lake Lanier.  We had a wonderful time together.  I didn't get much in the way of pictures because we were too busy being together, and it's hard to capture lights from a moving car.

Here's a picture from the other day, though, of the kids hunkering down in the leaf pile, bundled up against the frigid temperatures and holding their umbrellas against the sleet that was falling.  What a strange mix of seasons in one picture!
 Mindy is getting a little tired of our festivities taking us away from home and likes to hold on tight when we get home again.  What a flurry of excitement we've had lately!
