We’re still out of school up here. My kids miss school, but after really taking a look at the bill in dispute, the one that’s causing our teachers to not return to work, I understand what they’re asking for. I’ve actually never been more proud to live in the city I live in. We’ll be headed up to the Capitol tomorrow to give the kids a taste of what it’s like to fight for what you believe in. Not that they haven’t seen that enough from FPD and I in their short lives. You fight for it in Ghana, you fight for it in your hometown.
Speaking of Ghana, the Duo received some happy news from their birth mom. We send our congrats to her in Ghana. The news is personal, but she now has the ability to access this blog as well. We’re very happy for you!
It’s a FullPlate Family tradition to go ice skating for Valentine’s Day. There were plenty of opportunities this week since we weren’t in school. The Ghanaians took to it like a duck to water. Some of the Americans are still learning.
Gigantobaby wouldn’t let go of this contraption. When I talked him into it, he fell head first into the boards. Oops.
Do you remember how small she was last year? Bubbly is getting SO big.
ShyGuy and Middle-Middle are like a blur on the ice. ShyGuy had no fear about falling. His pants were SOAKED when he was finally done. The boy will try anything. He makes me SO proud.
Giggles wanted to know if I could spin in circles, like in the Olympics. The girl really thinks I can do anything. Ummm…not that.
ResponsiBoy always has fun showing the younger kids his stuff. He’s a good skater.
