A Nice Day for a Drive

Ron let Tyler practice driving in the school parking lot today. In a month he'll be able to get his temps. Seriously. How is he this old??

The Groundhog Seems to Have Been Mistaken

It was a beautiful day today!! It's supposed to be in the 60s for the next week, and we are lucky enough to have a 4 day weekend. I spent some time sitting in the backyard in the sunshine and reading for a couple hours today. I know it's going to make it that much worse when our weather returns to normal, but it was so very nice today. Danielle spent the day playing with her friends and then jumped on her trampoline for a few minutes. There was still enough light at nearly 6:30pm to take this picture!

And just for fun, here is a picture of Danielle at her speed, strength, and agility class yesterday. I don't know how many more she'll be able to attend. School softball practices start next week.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Danielle presented me with this homemade valentine today. I love her sense of humor.

She gave Ron one with a crudely drawn Yoda head that said "Yo-da best".
Seriously. We hit the jackpot when it came to our kids' personalities.

Scheduling the Future

Here we are again. High school class scheduling time. It's a rude, slap-you-in-the-face reminder that we only have 3 more years before Tyler graduates from high school. 3 years. That's 3 summer vacations. 3 birthdays. 3 Christmases.

Tyler's Honors Biology teacher recommended he take Honors Chemistry next year, which was part of his plan anyway. That's a class he can get college credit for, so I guess it's time to apply to community college.

How have 15 years gone so quickly?

Happy Birthday to Clara!

Yesterday was Clara's 8th birthday.

Tyler made her some cupcakes. She also got a new toy.


Yesterday was also Danielle's 1/2 birthday. We attempted to make it a 1/2 pan of brownies by eating some when they came out of the oven, but we really only accomplished making it 2/3 pan. There are 13.5 candles, though, and sticking with tradition, we only sang 1/2 the birthday song.

Clara - 8
Danielle - 13.5
