Headed South

We are so excited! We are going to Florida today. I'm packed and ready but it's still taking a little while to get going! Looking forward to just being with my family. Be prepared because I'm sure I will have lots and lots of pictures to share when we get back! Have a great week!

Fun at the Library & Water Country

Braeden was so excited this week when he got to see some of his favorite things at the library! It was a little too up close and personal for me!

We went to Water Country again this week. My mom and dad brought Jack this time. And Nathan came with us. It seems to be coming a weekly trip!

Puppy Fund

I've never thought of myself as a dog person. Yes, I have a dog. But Cooper is an outside dog...See...

We bought Cooper about 7 years ago. He was a birthday gift for Madison. She has always been our animal lover. Actually the boys have pretty much followed in her footsteps.
Well, Madison has been asking for a really long time for an indoor dog. Something small, but inside. I have always said no. We had a cat once. A Himalayan. The cat hair was just too much. So we had to get rid of her. You know actually that was my second Himalayan. We had one before Madison was born, Libby. But we gave her away once Madison came along. Oh, sounds like a trend. But Cooper has been with us for a good while. He is so good with the kids, really anybody. Okay, back to the inside dog. I've always said no. You would get a kick out of all the things Madison has said and done to try to convince me. So recently I've been thinking that I just might have to become a dog person. For my kids. I know it will make them happy.
So we have been looking for a dog. Well kind of. We explained to the kids that Dad is not working. So we can't spend a lot of money on a dog. We are letting them take a little responsibilty in this. So we have created the Puppy Fund.

They were putting all kinds of bills in this jar! Little Braeden was so sweet. He had been saving money since his birthday. He was willing to donate to the fund! So we will see what happens in the future. We haven't found what we are looking for yet, but maybe one day!

Florida Trip

Last week we went to Florida. Dean had classes everyday so he couldn't come this time. I drove down and my mom and Nana came with us. My dad, brother and Connor rode down together. My parents had already been down a few weeks ago and done a lot of work to the house and to the yard. It looked very nice! We all had a good week together. My cousin and her boys were down at her parents this week too. My aunt and uncle live two houses down! So the boys had so much fun together.

Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy...~ Psalm 126:2
