Our Zoo trip

We had a day off of school so we decided to go to the Zoo! We hadn't been for a while and had a great time. Actually, the zoo is a bitter sweet trip, don't you think? Nothing so majestic as a large tiger, orange and black, sleek and impressive, pacing in his too small "environment", in front of a glass barrier separating him from the gawking humans. A bit too real? Nonetheless, we had a good time watching our girls. Oh yeah, did I mention the baby elephant? Oh my. I couldn't stop looking at her she was so darling and small, as far as pachyderms go.

Jabez is back!

My little brother is back from Iraq! He surprised everyone and came home a month early! In Iraq, he received the Bronze Star for bravery. We are so proud of him and what he has done. Jabe, we are so glad you are back, and back safe.

This could be our new house!

Hey, all. This is it! Our new future home in Elk Ridge. Okay, so we are just under contract and still the inspection may prove it unfit for us but it seems that all will go fine and we will be in it by the end of October. HOORAY!!

Lu's first day

Lucy is officially a kindergartner! "Will you stay for a while on the first day of school or will you kiss me and say good-bye?" Lucy asked me. Sensing her trepidation, I said "I'll do anything you want. What do you want me to do?" In true Lucy form she says,"I want you to kiss me and say good-bye." I guess it was me who was nervous.
