Abby's 1st grade class had Reading Restaurant, where the kids serve their guests by reading to them and the bill at the end calls for hugs as payment. These kids were so polished and took their jobs so serious… it was simply precious!!!
As you can see, Grace is always the highlight :-)
Andrew had rodeo day at school. Love this cowboy!
This weekend we went to the zoo for the first time in… a long time, in fact it was Grace's first time to the zoo! We had such a great time and it was a beautiful day for some fun family time and oohing and awwing at the super cute baby animals.
Duncan, the baby elephant that is just a few weeks old, was certainly the highlight of our trip to the zoo!
He looks much smaller in person for some reason...
Here is Andrew's favorite animal, the cheetah! If your kids (especially boys) haven't watched Wild Kratts, I highly recommend it. A typical day in the Ross house consists of all things "creature power."
Here are my favorite animals posing with the cheetah...
I wish I had a picture of Abby's favorite part of the zoo, but some how we didn't get a picture of Miss Kelly. One of our sweet friends works at the zoo and she walked around with us and told us tons of fun facts about the animals. Miss Kelly was Abby's favorite part of the zoo :-)!
We went to Gramaldi's, where the kids love playing with the pizza dough while we wait for our food.
Abby made a heart because… well, we are obsessed with all things hearts these days (in tribute to Grace's special little heart).
Andrew made… me! Unfortunately, the flash makes it impossible to see his creation, but I can tell you that it looks just like me ;-)
Grace has a cardiology appointment on Tuesday of this week. Sweet Village, will you please pray for nothing but great news? Please pray specifically that her heart and lung function/pressures look perfect and that her valve is still doing amazingly well (it's not leaky and the gradient across it has stayed the same or even gone down)?
Thank you, with much love and appreciation!
