Kathleen is still enjoying her running and recently did a local 5 K :-)
She finished in about 26 minutes and won second place for her age group, just seconds behind the first place winner. We are so super proud of her!! She ran this one last year for the first time ever and had come in first :-)
After the race we took her to get a snowball and she was super happy as until recently there were no snowballs stands or places here. We were used to them in Maryland and have been missing them!
Found this beautiful painting of the wings at our local mall and had to get a picture. :-)
We had a tough 2 weeks with Hayley. She had a ruptured ear drum and 2 serious ear infections. She was in so much pain. Luckily our ENT was able to help get her through it and we hope she never has to experience that kind of pain again. It is so hard as a parent seeing your child suffering and not being able to take the pain away. Daisy spent a lot of time by her side comforting her.
Hurricane Michael seemed to hit us harder than the last one! We had more flooding around the yard and in our basement again.... Kathleen and I walked around and picked up some of the branches that had fallen to give to our goats Annabelle and Ruby. Our yard was like a swamp!
It also flooded our pond again... at this point it hadn't yet buried the pier.
We had our first cooler day this past weekend and Kathleen was excited to get back in the kitchen and bake some treats to take over to a friend's house. Of course we got to sample one too, lol and they were so delicious. She made brownie, chocolate chip cupcakes with marshmallow icing from scratch. :-)
She definitely enjoys fall and still takes time to climb trees, though she is a lot taller then when she first started climbing them! Now her feet about touch the ground while in the tree! LOL
My beautiful niece Neve had her first homecoming dance this past weekend! The theme was Wizard of Oz and she looked so beautiful! I can't believe how fast they are growing up. She's a freshman in High School already!
This week at Hayley's high school is meme week. She picked one she found funny and created the Kermit outfit to go with it. As a mom.... it's not my favorite meme, but her outfit creativity was cute so I just had to share!
And I'd thought I'd leave you with a little photo of Jerry trying on Halloween masks in Walmart the other day, lol. Not a bad look ;-)
