Craft time!

So much fun gluing tissue paper to cardboard. They had a great time.

Images from Spokane

Here are a couple pictures for those who care =) The green house was our amazing neighbor Gen, it hasn't changed in color since I was little. The brown and white house was the very first house I lived in until I was 7 or 8. Awesome house, they have eliminated the front yard grass and put in a nice fence. I remember learning to ride my bike in front of this house while my brother played in the grass in his little playground. Lots of great memories there! The last picture is of the court house, I never really thought of it as a beautiful building but man driving by it this weekend, it's gorgeous. I didn't realize how lucky I had been to live around so much history and beauty until being gone for six years or so.

Gorgeous clouds

On our way out of town Friday night I noticed some gorgeous clouds. Seeing God in nature is always such a attitude boost for me!

More pictures

I will admit I've been having some issues getting my computer to let me download pictures off my camera. Lo and behold I changed anti-virus software and all kinds of things are working better. I do have a new company I am using and it is catching things the other didn't it is just more compatible so now I can put pictures on this here bloggy thing =)
Someone  fell out of bed and continued sleeping on the floor =)

Feeding the ducks

Finally had a nice night and some extra time so we headed to the park near our house and fed the ducks. They made the weirdest noises, didn't sound like ducks, more of a cross between chickens and song birds, didn't hear a single quack. We had a great time and got rid of the nasty tasting wheat bread from Costco =)

Ben sitting so nice waiting for our walk.

I think this turkey was a little puffed up about the dog on the other side of the fence. We should have called the turkey Smokey =)

This was the funniest sign. Before we got to it Cale came running down the path asking me what Norses were haha!

Ben enjoying a little tromp in the water.

You know when you have four kids, stay home all the time, homeschool, are sick so you can't go to church, oh and have a daycare you just feel isolated? Well, that's how I feel lately. I know it's winter, I know this season of life will pass but the one shining light in the whole thing is Don is home every night, we are enjoying having him home still!!! I know a lot of people have asked me if I am sick of him and ready for him to go on the road, I don't see how anyone could say that. Yep I'm married but I want to see less of my spouse?!? Whatever, well, we've been having some fun times lately we headed over to our favorite stomping ground in Corvallis last weekend to let the dog and the kids get rid of some energy. I think we walked 4 miles and got a little wet but it was fun. Don is starting to get in to this outdoorsy thing =) He is still on light duty, his doctor has him on some different meds and he has been getting acupuncture type treatments but she is injecting lidocaine into the needle points and it seems to be helping somewhat. I think the biggest thing we have to remember is that it took a long time for him to get to this point and it may take that long to get full use and painfree living back. I can't get pictures to upload today so will try and add some later.
