Poor Annie

She is wearing a "cone of shame," but tonight figured out how to get around it to her legs.  It looks like steady sedation is in her future until she heals.  Yes, she is as unhappy as she looks.

Fun at Big Splash and a Big Surprise on the Way Home

We took our 2nd annual trip to the water park this weekend.  We had a great time playing in the water and enjoying the hotel room with bunk beds for the kids.  Here are a few pics:

The big surprise this weekend was that we bought a new van!  Tim had been shopping for used vans and on our way home from the waterpark we agreed to purchase the 2010 Odyssey pictured below.  We won't be able to pick it up for a few weeks due to our travel plans and theirs, but we are excited to have a vehicle to drive that is new reliable.

Snow, School, and the Dog

It has been routine day in and out here.  I haven't posted in a while because we have been busy with the day to day.  There have been two "big snows"- which in Kentucky means it snowed more than 2 inches.  Twice last week we saw snowfalls over 5 inches here.  It was enough that we had to dig paths for Annie so she could go out in the snow! The kids thought it was great fun and ate snow cream all week!  No, homeschoolers do not get snow days.  I like days off in May!!  I did let them play outside during free time so they built snowmen and dogs and had fun playing in our woods.

Tomorrow our "baby" girl will turn 5 years old.  Its hard to believe Katey is so big.  Its a big day for her and she is looking forward to starting Kindergarten.  She perfected writing her name on her Valentines this year and is eager to learn to read.
