Winter

Sora is becoming a budding ballerina. Since she started lessons in October she practices her dance moves every chance she gets.
We did a count down to Solstice. I simplified it this year - I am accepting the fact that we can't do everything we used to do in December that we did when we lived in WI and Sora and I were home every day. It feels good to let go of that pressure.
Sora and I at the holiday symphony. She is rocking a very fancy skirt to make up for the casual shirt.
Sora is always the guinea pig for my projects at work. This means that over break she got to try out drawing with crayons on a warm hot plate. It was a success (and something she did when she was 4).
On the 31st of each month Baskin Robbins has a sale. Sora was stoked to go on new year's eve together.
We spent a lot of time snuggling and reading over break.
Sora in front of her grandma McPherson's tree. Notice the ballet pose (and the "unders" that she wore almost a week straight).
And my favorite selfie of winter break!

School starts back tomorrow, which means no more sleeping in until 8 or later (a skill Sora was finally beginning to understand) and not wearing the same pajamas for multiple days. It might be a rough transition for the poor kid (and the rest of us).
