Although, I guess it's technically still autumn, isn't it. We've had a couple of days of jacket weather, but it's mostly been the air conditioner that runs around here.
Boerne had a Christmas evening deal going on. It was super crowded, so we just walked around a bit and then went to Dairy Queen for a snack. Liz drove home so she could get some night driving hours in (you have to have 20 hours of day driving and 10 hours of night driving before you can get your license).
"Snow" in Boerne.
I think Elizabeth is the only one who remembers anything about real snow.

There were a lot of solo and duet instrumentalists outside the shops along Main St.
Look how bright and sunny it's been around here!
This Lantana bush was full of butterflies.
And a bit of nature around our house.
I sit on the floor of the garage to do school with the kids individually. The garage door is up so that we can enjoy the outside. We throw out little handfuls of birdseed and listen to the sparrows and grackles peck, peck, pecking while we school.
I just put a teensy picture here because it's a little gross. But it's also fascinating. We saw what looked like a palmetto bug taking a bite out of this long white grasshopper-looking thing. Later on when I came outside, the white bug had resumed the shape of a palmetto bug and was eating its brown shell. So it had been in the process of molting when we first saw it. So weird. It had really looked like a grasshopper, minus the jumping legs.
