Today has been a whirlwind of a day! It always seem to be like that after a snow day. I think having kids at home is great, but I seem to get SO much more done when they're at school.

I had to run some errands today for the volunteer project I'm working on. I was making a delivery in a nearby mountain community, and there in the middle of the road was a really large mule deer. It was just sauntering across the street, oblivious to my van..and pretty much everything else around it. It was a buck and I counted 8 points. Isn't that funny? It's actually not uncommon to see deer walking across the highway, or even in neighborhood streets in this particular community. It still catches me off guard! I'm hoping to see a deer than a bear or mountain lion though--from inside my van of course!

Sarah is at AWANA tonight. She goes every Wednesday night to one of the churches here in town to their AWANA program. She loves it. It's a pretty challenging program. You should see the number of Bible verses she has to memorize each week. She's great at it though, and we're really proud of her. Will doesn't really want to go, and we certainly don't make him. I think one reason Sarah likes it is because it's something that is uniquely "hers". In the picture above she's wearing her AWANA vest. For those of you who are familiar with AWANA, she's a Hiker this year and is working on the red jewels.

You know, there's never really a dull moment around here. After dinner and homework, we were working on our thankful chain, and I asked Will to bring me the stapler. Somewhere between the kitchen drawer and the kitchen table, he managed to staple his thumb. You should have heard him scream when he realized the staple was in his flesh! YOW! Well, we got it cleaned up and bandaged, and all is well with the world again, but I don't think he'll be asking to use the stapler any time soon!

Abbey was John's buddy today. He stayed home with her for a couple of hours while I ran errands this afternoon. They have a lot of fun together. Today, when I came home, they were playing with Will's matchbox cars, but it's not unusual for them to play Polly Pocket or princesses together. John, of course, gets to be the prince in the princess make-believe game. Cute! He's a great dad!
