catching up!!

Sorry it has been a while since I updated, but it has been a very hard month.
We had to say goodbye to our first baby :(
Fly high my sweet beautiful Ginger!
She was 15 years old and we had her since she was a puppy.
She was the sweetest dog in the world.

It is the first time the kids have ever had this happen and it hit all of us very very hard.
I still miss her so very much!
 Then it was time for Halloween:
Victoria wore her Guatemala outfit

Gerri wore her Ukrainian outfit

then it was parade time

her skirt came undone :)

Halloween cupcakes :)

Trick or Treat!! :)

Lots of loot! :)
Happy Veterans Day Daddy!!

Ms V got glasses!!! :)

We went to see Wild Kratts, it was awesome!

One of the teachers had her falcon with her!



They used a fire extinguisher to show the principle of force



Then it was time for each 4th grader to send their rockets up!

So very excited!! Finally her turn!!

I didn't realize it but I had been away for almost every weekend the entire summer!

acting happy on the ride home, but not really happy since we had just been told that she would be in a cast for the summer :(
 The girls had princess camp at church - they were very excited for the last day when they would be crowned princesses of god!
beautiful princesses!

they did bird houses to show their fortitude!
 
Every day they talked about one princess and one saint :)
 

 
 
 
 The good news is the dr's office told me about cast covers so I promptly went on to Ebay and bought one!!  it is amazing!! wish we had it the whole summer!!
