Spring is here, the chickens are happy to be free and so are all of the other creatures of our house!

Summer is almost here!

Summer is almost here and you know what that means.....  Camp Shaw!  We went for an open house last weekend to show Maisie what she should expect this year since she is going as well.  Everyone is very excited.  Each time I head to Camp Shaw I wish that I could go there for a brief vacation.  Well guess what?  I can!!  They do family camp on various weekends through out the summer.  We are thinking of trying to head down there for a weekend this summer as a family although I don't know... the summer sure is booking up fast!

Here are some of the things the kids are looking forward to at Camp Shaw this summer:


The Zipline over the River

Swimming and butt surfing in the river (if it is at normal levels, this is WAY higher than usual, this was after all of our flooding last week )

Doesn't it make you want to be a kid again?

Bye Bye Mindy!

Well today we said Good Bye to Mindy our foster puppy from Foster2Home.  She has been adopted by a wonderful couple with another dog and hopefully all will go well and they will all be happy together.  Having a puppy has been fun but we are ready to enjoy the freedom of having just Freckles, the World's Best Dog again.  We just hope Freckles isn't bored with US now!!

No more sharing her bed and toys with Mindy - let's see if she appreciates that :-)
