Last week we celebrated another birthday! I can't believe we only have one more year until she is in YW! This has been a year of growth and maturing for Anna. She has changed so much and become such a great help to me. I don't know what I would do without her.

Halloween continues to be her favorite holiday!

Some of Annas favorite things are reading, reading, reading, riding her bike, playing with her sister and little brothers, and cooking. She is full of life and has an infectious personality! We are so blessed to have her in our family!

We took her to Medieval Times for her special day and we all had a great time! And with the web coupon it was well worth the money! Unfortunately, I didn't take a single picture!

A looooong time

I realized today that it is coming up on a month since my last post.  I have been waiting for a chance to get the pictures from the camera to the computer. It may never happen at this rate....this is why I am no longer doing pictures for others. Keeping up with my own is hard enough right now.

But don't confuse lack of posts with lack of activity....we have been pretty busy. Some activities over the last few weeks include, meeting "Paul Revere", Marching thru History (where we watched several battle reenactments and visited military camps throughout the ages, including our favorite, the Romans, where we had a chance to practice our Latin and watch a gladiator fight!), soccer games, the girls have started going to book club, and we have started Latin with another family (and yes, I know it's a "dead" language...although it's really some research!), building and erupting Mt. Vesuvius and other school projects.

As far as my health goes....well not much has changed. I wish I could say I was all better. I have had some more tests done and still no answers. I have another apt in a couple of weeks and hopefully something good will come from it. I manage to get everything done that needs to be done but there is little left for much else. (like pictures!) As David says, "the cake is getting baked but there's no frosting." I miss the frosting things, like shopping, running, photography, and cooking yummy food rather than whatever is easy, but I am trying to be grateful for the cake, after all it's a pretty good cake.

Speaking of Dr. apt's, because of some symptoms Robert has started experiencing with increasing frequency he will probably be having that surgery sooner that we had hoped. More on that later...

Hopefully I will get to work on pics soon!
