The first week of Spring!!!!

Larissa's Cast

Boys at the Science Center

Well, in the past few weeks we have had wonderful 70 and 80 degree weather and loving it.  However, this week we have had mostly cooler temps back into the 40's and 50's.  Talk about drastic change....ugh! 

During our sweet weather bit, we did get out and mow our little patches of grass, replant one of those stupid trees we were forced to have and We got the swing set up.  The kids were able to get out and run, enjoying the great weather after the cold winter.  Not to mention they have become friends with the other kids in the neighborhood and loving it. 

We have had to re-establish house rules to bring back order which is now going to be framed and hung on the wall.  Intead of mom just having to "BE MEAN" and administer the consequences, I will not nag and just tell them to go read rule # ... and the consequence.  So far it's working out great.  No more "THAT's NOT FAIR".  LOVE IT! 

Last Sunday, our lovely Larissa took a fall.  At first we weren't sure how bad it was and waited 24 hours before heading to the Dr and sure enough, Broken both bones in her forarm.  So we had to take a day trip back into Louisville for an Appointment with an orthopedic Dr for the BRIGHT NEON PICK cast with Purple Glitter, but that also ment having to kill time so we went to the science museum.  HOW NEAT IT WAS!  They had a special exibit of all the Star Trek stuff.  From the costumes, to the actual Captain Kirk Chair.  So neat.  Of course no photography allowed.  I So wanted to post it.   OH WELL, the kids absolutely loved it. 

Now we wait for the weather to come back and hope to soon see some planting and get the Veggies and Flowers out.  But first we have some other projects we need to do.

Hope your daughter heals quickly. I would love to know more of your house rules and consequences. That's not fair is a big term in my house at the moment:(
