It has been a couple of years that Blake has refused to wear a little kids tie with the zipper and clasps. It has also been a couple of weeks that I have been thinking he should learn to tie it himself. Today after church Dave gave him a few minutes of instruction. He did it many times by himself. He did a single Windsor and a double Windsor. Blake was so excited. Look what a fantastic job he did. This is also a tie that he got from Ty, so we liked to say, Blake tied the tie he got from Ty:)
Cora and Blake built this snowmen to welcome Dave home after a day of skiing. It was such a beautiful day the kids spent quite a while outside playing in the snow. And Dave had a great ski day. He said it was perfect conditions.
