Beautiful day

You know they say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I have to agree. How can you look at Kerstin's smiling face and not praise God for taking such good care of her! We just had to get out and enjoy the beautiful day today. Jeff stayed home with Kerstin this morning while McKinsey and Annie went to church. We didn't want to take the chance of her "catching any bugs" with so many people there. Afterwards we all walked to a new restaurant in the neighborhood for lunch together. The rest of the afternoon was spent swinging, riding bikes, going for a walk, cleaning out the car, sweeping out the playhouse and just enjoying being outside. Thanks for checking on us! Enjoy the day!

Yippee! This weather makes me so happy. I can tell by your faces in the pictures that it does the same for you. I am so thankful that you were able to enjoy the day together as a family.

Nice ACTION photos ladies.

I think you are enjoying the warm January weather more then about anyone I know.

Good for you. The snow will eventually come back and you will be thankful for the time outdoors. glad to see you are feeling like yourself. We pray this will continue for you.

Big Hugs to all of you!

I'm so glad you felt good on a beautiful day! It was so warm yesterday, it felt like spring. I took Elise and Eliot to Antelope Park for a while, but it was crazy there!!! Everyone wanted to enjoy the great weather. Now today it has started to snow....does that happen in other states, or just Nebraska? Adrienne went with her friend Sophia to Kansas City over the break to the Great Wolf Lodge. It's a big indoor waterpark, so I'm sure they are having tons of fun! How long does you teacher stay when he comes to your house? I got Eliot some math books today. He needs to work on word problems at home because somehow he weazeled out of them at school. Have you started those yet? They are not his favorite and he makes that very clear to me! I think I made it very clear to him that he would be doing them anyway. Do you and mom ever have days like that?
Well, enough babbling...I'm glad McKinsey is home to play with you. Have fun together!
Hugs and prayers-

Hi Kerstin,
I am so glad you were able to get outside yesterday and enjoy the beautiful day! I even went out to play for awhile and rode my horse. Today was sure a change of weather! As I am starting to work on report cards, I just wanted to tell you how proud of you I am! You have been working super hard with Mr. Knobel! Keep up the super work!!! Hopefully it won't be too much longer and you will be back in our classroom working. Seeing your smiling face makes me so happy to see you feeling good again. I continue to pray for you daily and can't wait until you are sitting at a K table again! Take care of yourself and continue to work and play hard. I miss you!!! Love Mrs. Swiatek

How much fun can two little girls have?!! :) Looks like A LOT. What a great day of fun in the sun! Casey & Kenna have been enjoying some fun time outside, also. There's nothing moms & dads like more than seeing their kids having a hoot with the sun shining on their smiling faces. Keep up the good work there. :) xoxoxoxo

Hi Kerstin and McKinsey. What a beautiful day you had on Sunday. It was nice here on "the mountain" too. Today (Monday) we got some snow and the deer were here looking for lunch. Did you get your playhouse ready for Spring? It'll soon be here and time to plant your garden. Stay away from that old flu bug. Love.
