Spring Break Staycation

29 Mar

We had a trip to Colorado in mind. We like to ski! Unfortunately a lithotripsy interfered with that. So – it was a staycation instead.

On Palm Sunday we celebrated beautiful dresses, curls in thick hair, and dogwood trees.

If this isn’t an answered prayer, I don’t know what is…

We visited nearby Cathedral Caverns, and marveled at the depths of the cave!

Belle, a dogwood tree, and her notebook.

We had a picnic at Ditto Landing. This was a perfect, awesome day.

We picked flowers and put them in vases.

We had LOTS of fun at Southern Adventures!IMG_6052 Some of us launched rockets. This picture is my favorite. He is NOT happy at the moment. Can’t you tell by his body language?!

Finally, success.

We rode around the park and even did some fishing!

And even though it was not a trip to the mountains, a good time was had by all!

We are a WCA family

29 Feb

Last summer Joe, Joseph, Bidbit and Bees participated in a fundraiser golf tournament for WCA. This winter they wanted to have our family photo taken for the WCA magazine. We all dressed in school colors. I am so thankful for this photo of both sides of our family, with all of our children!

And oh, be still my heart. This one’s going to KINDERGARTEN.

And as anxious as she might have been in her younger years, she’s said goodbye to being shy.

She walked right into that classroom and picked up a book and made herself right at home.

It’s going to be a great year!

Brasstown Valley back again

We said we’d be back, and this time we brought friends!  Hello again, Brasstown Valley!

We took time to feed the horses…

And of course time for each other…

Plus a little time for some S’mores!

The most fun part was the riding:

Even AC loved it!

And for those who didn’t love the riding, the sitting was pretty fun too.

Brasstown Valley, you did not disappoint!  We will be back again!

The Preschool Years: Summertime!

20 Aug

August 2010

Where has the summer gone?  I’ve let time slip away from me.  Or maybe we have just been too busy enjoying our “doing something fun every day” plan…

J3 and J2 visited nearby Cathedral Caverns for their first real cave exploration.  They experienced TOTAL DARKNESS!

We took a trip to the Birmingham Zoo and rode the carousel while there.

We saw the STAR WARS exhibit at the Space and Rocket Center with our friends the Mitchells.  (J3 did a great C3PO impersonation.)

We visited at the park with Bible study friends.

And we just generally held down the fort back at the castle…

All in all, it’s been a GREAT summer!

We are, however, ready for a new year: new classes, new school, new friends!

Here’s to FALL!
