Kevin and Kinsey loosing their teeth

Well, Kevin finally lost his FIRST tooth. Kinsey is a bit ahead in the "toothless" race. Kevin was so excited that he called his Dad at work to tell him the good news..."I lost my first tooth and I pulled it all by myself!" Dad came right home to celebrate. As you can see by their photos, they are pretty proud of their missing teeth.

Shay's knee injury

A week or so ago, Shay was playing at a friend's house and step on the last stair step heading to the basement. She apparently stepped with her weight shifting and dislocated her knee. We watched it for a couple of days and told her to be tough. She missed church on Sunday and then school on Tuesday with a very sore and swollen knee. Sooooo, we took her to the doctor who in turn sent us to an orthopedic specialist. There we found out that she had cracked her knee cap. The doctor said that instead of her ligament tearing which would have resulted in surgery, her bone in the knee cap gave way resulting in the crack. She has to wear a brace for 6 weeks while it heals followed by some physical therapy and exercise to strengthen the muscles in the region. She's real excited about it as you can tell in the photo.

And sooo it begins!

Well, after months of viewing everyone's blogs, we decided it was time to join the rest of the world in the blogsphere. It is a fun way to keep everyone updated on the happenings in our family as well as photos and other cool things we may come across in our travels. Hope everyone enjoys it as much as we have enjoyed viewing all your blogs.

Thought I should add our first photo so here's one from Thanksgiving last year at Rocky Point. What a blast! The kids loved it!
