We spent the long holiday weekend celebrating Peter. 
Eight years old... such a fun age!

His big birthday treat: Saturday morning at an indoor climbing center. 
We were all thrilled with his birthday pick. 

He LOVED every minute.

I could really get into this kind of exercise... we all could!

Monday morning birthday breakfast... all his favorites were requested. 

 Afternoon fun at Beauvoir's Outdoor Playground. 

 A beautifully mild and sunny mid-winter day. The perfect birthday for this outdoor loving kid.
Hard to believe that 2 days later I sit here looking at 5 inches of snow on the ground
and 6 degrees on the thermometer! 

Then home again for dinner and birthday cake with the Flemings.
Happy 8th Birthday to my sweet and spunky Peter!

Happy New Year!

January, how I love thee. So cozy and uncomplicated.

I mean December was oh-so-fun, but I need to catch my breath a bit... and a big inhale of chimney-smoke scented, crisp, mid-winter air. 

But before we set sail into this new year, a few moments to share from the end of our 2013....

cutting down the tree... timber!

and some catch-up time with Susan (our speaker)

this sweet boy turned TEN!

first snow of the season... oh, how I hope we have more this year!

Christmas dress-up day at Classical Conversations. And the last day of tin whistle! ; )

my CRAZY class of eight 8/9 year-old boys. oh. my.

a day at the holiday market and the National Portrait Gallery
