We got some snow in Georgia and it was an exciting weekend for all! The snow began falling around lunch on Sunday (March 1st) and continued throughout the day--about three inchess fell and it was BEAUTIFUL! The kids went out to play for a bit, but we spent most of the day by the fire, watching a movie and playing games. Then the kids were out of school for the snow on Monday--lots of time was spent outdoors, sledding and exploring. How FUN!

The boys both entered a science project in the Mulberry Science Fair this year. No, they are not super interested in science but it was 'highly suggested' that the gifted students participate . . . and so they did with a little prodding. Ethan won a 2nd place prize for his 'Red Cabbage Chemistry' project and Graham won a 3rd place prize for exploring 'Which Veggies are the Most Nutritious'. All in all it was a fun project for each!

Our precious Bailey girl left us on February 19th. She would have been 15 years old on May 21st . . . an amazing lifespan for a labrador! We like to think she hung around because she loved us and she was happy. One thing is for certain--we loved that precious dog! She has been a part of our lives since Kip and I were first married. She has been here with us through it all . . . the newlywed days, four different moves, the first baby and then two more, etc. and etc. We almost lost her a year ago; the boys were devastated and prayed that she would make it to the new house with us. Our prayers were answered and she enjoyed almost a year here with us . . . swimming in the lake, enjoying the wildlife and outdoors, barking at the geese! What a precious gift that time was for all of us . . . Thank you, Lord, for the time we had with her!

We have a soccer player! Anna Beth is THRILLED to be playing her first team sport. These pictures were taken the evening we picked up her uniform--she couldn't wait to try it on. Then I caught her practicing her ballet moves--in full uniform/cleats! We were all very impressed it could be done in cleats, lol!
She has been to several soccer practices since then and absolutely *LOVES* it. She is the tallest girl and all the other girls think she knows what she is doing because she is 'bigger'. HA--it is hilarious! Will have more picts after her first game on Saturday! By the way, the girls named themselves 'The Star Team'!
