 I let Duke decide on our outing today and he finally settled on beach combing at Point Woronzof.  It was amazing down there with the wall of ice.  We climbed onto the them, walked over them, walked through the crevasses and slid down them. 
 There also were great big bergs washed up on top of the ice wall.
 We were in a fog patch most of the adventure, but as we left the sun broke though.  We also had to take a different path back as the tide was coming in and we couldn't tell which bergs were on land and those on water. 
 The fog did leave beautiful ice feathers on the branches!
 We found some sea glass and then headed back to the car. 
Just a beautiful day!

We packed up the kids for some geocaching.  Duke took many pictures, but I haven't uploaded all of them to the computer yet.  It was beautiful and we had a great time.  That first picture is of me under a bridge, on a frozen river looking for a geocache.  It was right under the bridge by my head!  That was actually my 100th cache - woo woo!

 First of all, this picture was taken on Tuesday, Feb. 24th.  This is abby normal.
 It also is strange to have Duke playing in the puddle rivers at this time of year.  Bop getting his greenhouse ready is more on the normal side though.  Duke helped him do some watering as I went to get Kin from school.

This is a project Duke did.  It is the life cycle of a frog - the dark green thing is an egg, then the blue and green thing is a tadpole and then a blue frog with two skinny legs.  Creative chap!

 Two pictures from Forest School.  Everything was super icy so the children spent most of the time climbing up things so they could slide down. 

When Kincaid got home from school they wrestled and wrestled until I broke it up.  They are getting a little big and strong for free form - they need some rules for their matches I think!

Quiet weekend on the Alaskan front.  Icy mess made for much inside time and knitting.

It was another beautiful day and it was also a 1/2 day for Kincaid.  We zipped home from school and then off to a hike in the mountains with friends.

We did find a few geocaches along the way, which is always a bonus for us!
The kids had a great time, but I am beat! I pulled the sled so we could sled down the powerline.  I pulled one kid most of the time it seemed.  At least it is a great workout!
