It seems like things haven't slowed down...I guess that's normal with
3 kids and 2 dogs. Yes, you read that right-We got a NEW puppy. Chase
(our 7-8 year old cocker spaniel) welcomed Chip (a now 73 lbs, 7
month old Chocolate Lab). He is a great dog, but is still very much a
puppy. We had a great time at the dog park recently with Chip and
We love staying busy though. We've enjoyed being in WI and so close to "home". Back in January, John took the boys to Indianapolis for a day to experience all the Super Bowl Festivities. They were beyond excited when he surprised them by picking them up early from school and heading south. What a memorable daddy and son experience.
We have enjoyed the very mild WI winter. We had a few good snow falls, but nothing too crazy. The thing that was hardest to get used to is that nothing stops when it snows. There was one day that it was snowing fairly hard when the kids left for school and we ended up with 7 inches before the end of the afternoon and school wasn't released early or anything. It's no big deal here. We loved every minute of it!
We been able to enjoy even more fun times as a family over the past few months too. On top of our time house hunting (seeing approximately 25 homes) we have also had fun doing things like seeing Casting Crowns in concert (with the Afters and Sanctus Real) and going to the Rock and Worship Road Show (with Mercy Me, Sidewalk Prophets, and 6 other bands). We also got to go to events on campus like the Dr. Suess Suessical and Chemistry Club Family Night. Oh, and we can't forget the sporting events. We saw the Division III National Championship Football team and Basketball team play, and Adalynn and I went to see the co-champs Women's Gymnastic Team at a meet. The kids really enjoy taking advantage of everything the Whitewater campus has to offer.
