Sorry so lame on the blogfront. I think we are back in business. We'll do a little catch up work to keep things in order!

Allysan is reading a card for McKay from grandma and grandpa. Her reading skills have just been so great lately! You can hear a typical evening in the background at our house. The end is the funniest because Ally shows us her new pet! Ally wanted to take the after school class called "icky insects." She came home with this huge mother of a bug and a jar and instructions. She loved it and played with it as if it were a real pet, which she really wants. That same night she came in our room crying because she didn't dare go downstairs 'cause she thought the bug was roaming around. So the next day, all on her own, she took the bug back to school. Well, after school she started crying crocodile tears and wouldn't tell me what was wrong. She said she woulnd't tell because it was silly and she was embarrassed. I coaxed it out of her. She was sad because she missed her bug. I asked her why she was embarrassed. She looked at me with her head to the side as if to say "dah!" and she said, "Mom,... it's a bug!" She has such a tender heart and loves animals so much.

It's about time you updated your blog, but I have no room to talk. I am lucky to write something once a month. We need to get together one of these days now that we are closer. Your kids are too cute and are growing too fast. Megan
