They also had their first taste of basketball this last winter. Cole is getting agressive in this picture. That was his best asset. He may not have been the best at dribbling or shooting, but he was definitely one of the best defenders on his team (takes after his mama!). Aviana was the only girl on the team and also the youngest. So she was a little unsure of the whole thing, but when she played she did really well.
Alidia was a champ, spending a lot of Saturday mornings playing with her dolls on the floor of the gym. There were always good snacks at the end that made the whole endeavor worthwhile.
And just in case we didn't have enough animals around here, we recently acquired a new pet rabbit. It found us really by appearing on our porch one day. But we of course caught it, caged it, and took it in to our ever growing family of furry friends. We diligently checked for lost bunny ads, but after 2 weeks we went through the emotional drama of choosing a name. And "Nutmeg" became a member of the family. (Kookaburra, Cocoa, and Brownie were other close name contenders.)
That brings our house total to: 5 chickens, 1 dog, 1 fish, 1 frog, 2 gerbils, 1 bunny, 1 cat and 10 humans.
