Snapshots of our Week | Long Island Documentary Photographer

Happy Winter Break!

The kids enjoyed Valentine's Day last week - they both brought in cards and goodies for their classmates and came home with boxes full of treats given to them. I gave them a couple of books each on Valentines' morning and a Fingerling, which you can finally find in toy stores now that the Christmas craze is over!

Lila is reading books on her own now, which is awesome to see. She sat down and read a 50 plus page first reader book this week! She has already voraciously read the two books I gave her for Valentine's Day. Logan is getting good at his sight words too! It's really amazing to see how much information and knowledge kids their age soak up. They are like little sponges. The other morning Logan (age 3) came up to me and said "I know three ways to make six: one plus five, three plus three and four plus two!". What??

The weather was pretty mild last week so I tried to get outside with Logan every afternoon. He's been riding his scooter a lot and drawing outside with sidewalk chalk. Sometimes we go and visit Eric and his dad at the house they are renovating around the corner. On Thursday Logan and I went out to lunch together in Garden City. It was fun going on a little date with my littlest guy. He's good company.

School finished up on Friday for the winter break. The weather turned cold and it snowed on Saturday night. We drove up to Copake on Sunday and are here for the week. Looking forward to sharing more photos from our winter break getaway next week!

Ten more days and it will be March - can you believe it? Spring is coming for us!
