Fool’s Spring

Today in northern Ohio we reached almost 60 degrees! My oldest wanted to do some art designs on her night stand, so we took it out to the garage to let her paint. My youngest wanted to dance and twirl to music. The weather was amazing and we fully enjoyed almost the entire day outside. It is also a blessing that it was so nice out because we lost power for almost 3 hours. It seems there was some sort of equipment failure and even the hospital at the corner lost their power. We just continued to play outside and were thankful it came back on just in time to make dinner. The sun is just starting to set now and we are warm inside being teased by the smell of turkey in the Instant Pot!

Working on double extended elbow rolls!
She is a true artist!
We were getting silly after hours outside!

It was no walk in the park…

The aftermath of a warm february day in ohio….

The park was covered in ice and iced footsteps on all the pathways. My older nanny girl thought it was fun! It was an adventurous walk but all 3 of us made it to the swings. After we played for a little bit we walked over the check out the waterfall.

The water was rushing, very high and super muddy from all the snow melting. In the summer time we see fishermen standing on these rocks and children swimming in this area. Not today! We enjoyed watching it from the observation deck above!

Working from home is kind of nice!

Once a week i get a day to work at home. It’s my “day off” from my nanny family but i NEVER stop moving. Today i did laundry, got my nails done, cleaned the bathrooms, made homemade gluten free bread, grocery shopped, made a key chain for a student, and did the March private lesson and class schedule for the Pink Ladies Baton Corp. Phew it was a lot. I would have loved to binge watch some Netflix but that’s just not who i am. Now I’m off to make dinner for John because its already that time of day. Seriously where did the last 12 hours go!?!

I felt like i was in a scene from the Lion King!

As i was coaching tonight i couldn’t stop looking out the window. The sunset was breathtaking. I had to pause practice and snap a picture. This is what happens when the coach is also a photographer!

Sometimes you just need to stop what you are doing and take in what Mother Nature has to offer. With all the snow and gray days we have had lately, this was one of those moments. My twirlers loved it also and it was a nice moment!
