What's new at the zoo?

Goodness, it's been a long time. What's been going on. Let's see...for starters we got new furniture for our living room. It's very comfy and we donated our old furniture to the youth at church. They said it was just what they'd been looking for. Along with at new couch, table and love seat we got a recliner. We hadn't had it 3 days when Elizabeth fell out of it and cut her eye on the new table! That was a trip to the hospital, but luckily no stitches were needed, Praise God!
The kids and I made a trek to Tennessee. We had a good time, but missed Daddy. He couldn't go because he was playing in the second round of the regional tournament!
Basketball went pretty well. I think they won 11 games one of them being a regional tournament game! Coach Shedd was named Coach of the Year by the local paper. We're so proud of him and his kids. They all worked so hard!
We took the kids to the circus! Barnum and Baily were in Birmingham doing "Barnum's Funundrum" and we all enjoyed it!
Elizabeth brought home her "progress report" for preschool. There were only 2 things she needed to work on. The first was tying her shoes and second was her attention span. I think all 4 year olds need to work on their attention span. She counts to 27 and she knows most of her letter sounds. She even knows some sight words! We're so proud of her. She's so smart!
Sarah Grace's vocabulary is growing every day. She's such a smart girl too! We converted her bed to a toddler bed, but I think we need to change it back. I don't think we're quite ready for that. She's working on potty training and we're gaining progress there.
Cole is amazing us daily too. He loves to watch basketball (ba ball) and play with his sisters. They usually pretend he's a monster and run away from him, but he eats it up. The other day Cole was standing in a chair and his father started counting so he would get down. He said one and Cole said 2. Not to shabby for a one year old! He also says "no" and "oh no". He's trying to say Sarah and sissy for Elizabeth.
They amaze us daily and we're so blessed to have them all even though I sometimes want to pull my hair out!
Right now we're dealing with a stomach virus which is NO FUN!
Love you all!
Hope you are well.
That's what's going on at the zoo!
