Sometimes LIFE just happens...

I usually try to keep my blog posts happy and upbeat, just journaling about what is going on in our lives so I can reflect back later. I am ready for this week to be over! I do have pictures, but I am too lazy right now to go find my camera.

Saturday the Cubscouts went to the corn maize in Shallowater! It was a blast and the kids had so much fun. We did get extremely LOST but finally made out way out. After eating a sack lunch I received a phone call from my dad. My mom had fallen walking into a resturant and they were in the ER. We rushed from Shallowater to be with my mom (and dad). Mom has a broke foot on her right side and a broke left wrist. We are very thankful and praise God that her injuries were minor!

Today after school I took our kitty, Nala, to the vet to be put to sleep. It was time. She has not eaten in 1 1/2-2 weeks and was just withering away. They think she probably had some type of cancer considering she was only 2 1/2 years old. Addyson LOVED Nala, as did the boys. We were in line tonight at church to eat and I looked down at Addyson and she was crying. I asked why, and she just hugged me and said she was missing Nala. Todd is out of town until Friday...(I don't do single parenting well) and will probably regret this later, but I will let Addyson sleep with me tonight and snuggle. She is going to be sad for a while.

The kids LOVE to take pictures of Nala with my camera...I am glad they did!
