Foster Pets

We have had so many foster pets, I have lost count. The kittens, especially, have been too many to count.  Lots of dogs with medical issues.

Antwon an older guy with skin issues

Lunchbox, a puppy with a broken paw who constantly kept us entertained!

Luke who was adopted and went missing for over a year.  He was finally found and this picture was taken of him when I picked him up form the shelter he had been taken to.

One of the many kittens

Ollie, a 13 year old blind and deaf guy who is about as sweet as they come.

Evie, K's favorite.  We cared for her until she recovered from mange.

Beegee.  A sweet guy who was wild while he was at the shelter and had been overlooked for months.  He calmed down and became a snuggly guy at our house and was adopted within a week!

K said that the after party was more fun than prom.  She liked being with a smaller group of just her friends.  I don't have any pictures of her date (who is just a friend) because they met at prom and another boy who was also meeting his date at prom picked her up.  Logistics are different when kids live far from school in opposite directions.

Spring 2018

This spring (Junior Year) seems to be all about studying, studying for the ACT, babysitting and practicing piano.  We did take a short trip to Chicago for winter break and for spring break we went to NYC, London and Ireland.

Our two night stop in NYC was brief and very cold.  A warm bowl of ramen helped K get through the day.

In London we spent an interesting afternoon at the Churchill war rooms.

We were then onto the most amazing place in Ireland called Ballyfin.  The weather did not co-operate and we had to cancel our falconry and shooting plans.  We spent most of our time by the fire, reading and eating cookies.  No complaints!

We did lots of touring in Dublin and a highlight was the library at Trinity College Dublin.

Winter Wedding

K's cousin Richard and sweet Anna Gayle got married on New Year's Eve.  It was a beautiful night and a beautiful wedding.  It was extremely cold and snow started falling just before midnight.
