Goodmorning! It has been a while that I have written a post. Well, lets see. We went on vacation and came back to very cold, snowy weather! We had 85 degree weather every day down in sunny Fort Meyers and it was just beautiful!

Brian & I have decided that we are no longer going to drive (yeah, we have said this before, but this time we are sticking to it). We took the new car and "broke it in". Good thing, because gas prices were outrageous!

We have had a busy two weeks since being back. Lindsey had stomach flu last Sunday - Tuesday and then Thursday I took her to the doctor and she now has strep throat. She is finally getting her strength and appetite back! After losing 4 lbs and a week of school (she only had two days last week), she is back in school today!!! She is my child that loves school and this was very bad for her to be at home instead of in the class room!

Alyssa started practice for softball last week and first practice, took a ball in the mouth, resulting in a fat lip. Thank goodness daddy reminded her to take out her mouth appliances before practice. I cannot think of what would have happened had she had them in.

She is doing very well in school, receiving all A's this last marking period. We rewarded her with a movie and dinner out and a promise to get ice cream once the ice cream shop in town opens. She completed a report on Japan and now is doing a report on Michigan. Hmmm, cold winters that last too long!

Brian & I are doing well and are looking forward to warm weather. He has tilled up the spot where our garden is going and we will be doing lots of yard work in the next few weeks!

Take care all!
