On The Go

We had a very busy Saturday. Kaitlynn had an activity at her school called On The Go. Different vehicles were there for the kids to explore like a police car, paramedics, mail truck, water patrol, caterpillar and fire truck. You could also take a school bus ride and see a helicopter land. Kaitlynn enjoyed the school bus ride. She was a little apprehensive about checking out some of the cars / trucks. She loved the police dog, Ola and learning about what she does.
Lever loves it outside. We had Bailey, Sassy and Lever outside most of the day. Kaitlynn loves running around with them.
Kaitlynn attended her friend's birthday party at The Little Gym. Kaitlynn was in a mood because she fell asleep about 5 minutes before we arrived. She was so tired from our busy day. She had been going since early that morning.

Hanging with Friends

Friday night Dave and I went out with some friends for one of their birthdays. We went to a bar that we frequent as a group. We always have a good time with this group. It was fun catching up with them. Everyone's lives have changed so much since the last time we all hung out. I have to say everyone seems happy, which is what you want for your friends. Kaitlynn had a good time staying home because she got to hang out with Hanna and Adam. She loves when they come over.

Go Cards!

Thursday Kaitlynn went to her Kids in the Kitchen class. They made Fred Bird hats, had circle time, sang "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" and then got started on cooking.
They shredded cheese for nachos, counted out the number of peanuts that corresponded to their age and cracked them, made caramel popcorn, put ketchup and relish on their hotdogs and made a slushie. Kaitlynn did great in class this week! At the end of class, all the kids wore their Fred Bird hats along with their teacher and had a picture taken. It was so cute!
Kaitlynn and I came home and took the dogs out. Lever loves our big backyard! Then Kaitlynn and I went to MawMaw's. We took MawMaw to the mall to get her out of the house and walking around.

It's Official!

We have adopted








an 8 week old








puppy. Kaitlynn fell in love with him at the Expo on Saturday the 10th. We filled out an application to adopt him.

His foster mom called and said he was ours on Wednesday the 14th. Kaitlynn, MawMaw and I went to pick him up that evening. He is just adorable! His name is Lever (like the soap) and he is a terrier.

Why are there 3 dogs in these pictures, you ask? MawMaw has been having trouble taking care of Sassy (her puggle) since getting out of the hospital, so we brought her home to take care of her for MawMaw. Kaitlynn loves Sassy.
Bailey and Sassy get along really well, too. She has done well in our home and has been staying with us since the 12th.
Sassy and Lever get along really well. Bailey is not so much into Lever. It will just take time for her to get used to him. Lever is going to be a big boy - probably about 50lbs!

First Spring Visit to the Zoo (this year)

Wednesday the 14th, Kaitlynn, Aidan and I met Eileen, Gabe and Merci at the Children's Zoo. The kids had fun seeing and petting a tortoise and a snake. We went through River's Edge where we saw a rhino, hippos, hyenas, a cheetah, and the elephants. We stopped for lunch, then went to the Jungle of the Apes. We saw them being fed. Kaitlynn and Gabe played in the misters and afterwards Kaitlynn said "it was like taking a shower. A shower with Gabe." I looked at Eileen and we just smiled and laughed. We saw the penguins, puffins and bears. The kids had a good time running around and seeing the animals. It was a beautiful day for the Zoo!

Update

Sunday the 11th, we went to church. Kaitlynn enjoyed her class. When we asked what she learned she said "Jesus went back to heaven." She is always so excited to hear and learn about Jesus! After church, we had lunch at El Maguey.

Monday, Dave and I attended a class at church. Kaitlynn was so excited for Hanna and Adam to come over to watch her.

Tuesday, I attended a class at church about the Bible. Kaitlynn and I went to see MawMaw. She is still feeling pretty weak and not able to do much. We did go out to dinner with her though just to get her out of the house.
