Glosser Chronicles: February Review

A goal I have with this blog is to use it as a connection to friends and family we don't get to see very often -- so they can get a glimpse of what our day-to-day looks like and keep up with what we've been up to. (Because, let's face it, my scattered brain is never able to conjure a good reply to the famous question, "What's new with you?") So maybe you're reading this & you're neither friend nor family, or maybe you see us all the time. Feel free to ignore all of these monthly review postings, but I hope that you won't. Perhaps it will help you gain insight to who we are, what we do, and why we do it! Here's hoping...

Home Life

The beginning of the month greeted us in the cruelest of ways... with illness. A virus led our Little Bug to an ear infection and to the brink of pneumonia. Thankfully, with lots of prayer and helpful home remedies, she recovered from all of it in just over a week.
Little Bug is back to her happy, rambunctious self. Praise the Lord!

We had a family movie night with Despicable Me 2, and this is what we get... purple minions.
My Starshine and my husband, the love of my life. So glad we got to celebrate Valentine's Day together! (I think the flash caught them both off guard a bit. haha)

A night of worship with Rend Collective Experiment. 
I can't imagine a better way to spend Valentine's Day.


Working on sorting animals native to Iowa by habitat (land, air, water).

Taking advantage of our freak Iowa winter weather (dubbed a "thundersnow storm"). We collected sleet from outside and experimented by adding salt and/or water to see which cup of ice would melt faster.

Aaaaand, some of us just ate the ice.

We made a very cool DIY geoboard to use along with our math study of shapes. I'll probably do a post about this soon! Thanks, Pinterest!
