Not quite sure why I named this post winter lull, because the energy level in our house is always high. Maybe I am growing tired of the dull, gray winter weather, but Cullen and Simone seem to keep things lively. Our little man continues to love sports. In addition to skiing, Cullen is developing a love for another winter sport: hockey. Our good friend Charlie Nelson (born and raised in MN - the State of Hockey) cut down one of his sticks and gave it to Cullen. Now he can't wait to set up his net and practice scoring. Dirk and Cullen also started parent/child basketball at the local Y. Last week's focus: dribbling, bounce passes and defense. Pictures to come.... Simone is still an avid reader. Whenever things seem too quiet and we can't find our toddler, she is sitting in her bedroom looking at books. Her all-time favorite is Goodnight Moon. In fact, she insisted on bringing "Moon" to the grocery store the other day. At the present moment, Simone's favorite member of the family is Camp. She loves filling his dog dish with puppy food, giving him treats and tons of hugs. It's funny because Camp and Cullen just co-existed and never really paid each other much attention. Simone is absolutely enthralled with our pooch. And most of the time, he doesn't seem to mind.
