The Zoo and a little State Pride

We have not been to the zoo in a while because it has been so cold, but last week we had the most gorgeous weather!  You just never know over here in the lone star state and it can be cold one day and hot the next.  Fortunately for us it stayed warm and we had a blast.

It was so much fun.
That was also the day that we got the kites out and just to show that ben can do it too,

When we got home and avery was home from school the girls wrote some stories and read them to us.

That was the beginning of many more stories that are hilarious and so precious.  Jeff and I got them clipboards and the paper that has space at the top and lines to write on at the bottom so that they can draw pictures and write about them on the same page.  To say that has been a hit is the biggest understatement.  They love it!  Lindsay and I used to play school like it was going out of style and I think they love doing the same things.  Avery has been using her clipboard as soon as she gets home and staying up late writing.  Last night she wrote about texas being the best state and when she prayed she thanked God that Texas defeated Mexico.  I guess we are all pretty thankful for that over here :)
State pride starts young over here!!
