I roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon in the oven. It was pretty good other then it being too salty. I forgot about bacon being salty and had too heavy a hand with the additional salt. The kids were not huge fans but did choke down their required few bites.
Evan helped me pull some carrots that had overwintered in the garden. I still have one bed left to pull before I can start planting for spring. I better get my rear in gear!
The kids have started a Park and Rec. beginner ballet class. I love Park and Rec. classes because they're fun without the pressure and intensity of a dance studio. I'm not looking to make my children into professional dancers (unless they decide they want to). I just want them to have fun and learn something new. I also love that the class is on Saturday mornings so it doesn't add stress to our weeknights.
Evan loves the parts where they leap and skip across the floor. Charlotte concentrates very hard and tries to look just like the teacher.
This was Evan's favorite part.
I would have taken them to another class this past Saturday but I locked us out of the house on our way to class. An hour later and $45 to a locksmith, we went for ice cream instead (to ease the disappointment of missing class). The following day, Evan asked me if I had my keys with me before I locked the door. He clapped for me when I said I did. He's supportive that way.
