The week is almost over already?!?

     I'm sick. :( So I'm sitting here on the couch and since I've got the computer nearby, I thought I'd post some stuff on the blog. The girls are happy as clams playing 'house' in their rooms, so I've got a little bit of down time (yay!). Since I've got time, (let's face it, I'm not going to be getting up to do any cleaning or laundry or any such stuff) I figured I'd start with last week and play catch up...maybe over two posts since we had ourselves an awesome weekend this past weekend and that deserves a whole post on its own.

      So. Last week. It started out with a rest day on Tuesday since Kyleigh had gotten sick the night before. (We had our fingers crossed that the stomach bug wasn't making a come-back. It didn't.)

 This is what happens when I've been stuck in the house for so many "sick days" - I get bored and start
getting goofy. Like trying to put bloomers on everyone's head while doing laundry. Yes. Even the dog.

First Soccer Game and a Lost Tooth!!

     It's the middle of the week and I've actually got a chance to write a post. Yea, that usually isn't a good sign these days. :/ Kyleigh's last day of school before tracking out was Monday, and that was a busy day for Abby and me. Then Tuesday Abby was in school. While she was in school, Kyleigh and I had a coffee date with Nate. :)

     Then we picked Abby up and headed to the Farmer's Market, came home, ate a snack, cleaned up the kitchen and then headed back out. This time we walked up to the grocery store to pick a few things up that I needed to to make some more food for my Mom and Dan.

Soccer Practices and Birthday Parties

It's officially springtime! Around here we are hoping that means warmer weather. Kyleigh's soccer season has started again and she's has practiced again for a few weeks now. Her first game is this Saturday the 13th.


- On April 7th, Abby had another birthday party to go to. :) This one was at the Museum of Life & Science. We were able to get there before the party and walk around together. We LOVE this place!!
You walk around the grid on the floor and see your movement on the wall screen.

Checking out the barnyard animals.

The girls' favorite place! The Butterfly House!

Checking out the insects first.

Sitting waiting for the butterflies to land on them.


Looking to see which butterflies they've seen.


Abby thought she'd double her chances of one landing on her. :)

Still waiting. :(

An Abby-Alpaca!

A Kyleigh-Alpaca too!

Then we watched the bears.

This guy was having lots of fun playing in the water. :)

After the party, we walked around in the building part.

Abby was excited to see the snakes. Eeew!

Trying out hand at making oragami butterflies. :)

- Then the next day (Monday) the stomach bug hit. And it hit hard. Here's Abby finally getting some sleep on Tuesday. :( Poor kid. Nate also got the bug. It wasn't a fun week at the Harned household.

The Other Half of March

My last post was March 19th, so what happened the rest of the month?

- On the 22nd, Jill came over with Ava to say hello for a bit. Abby brought some toys out of her room to play with Ava. After they had been here for a little bit, I got a call from Kyleigh's school saying she had a fever and needed to be picked up. :(

- On Saturday the 23rd, Abby had a friend's birthday party to go to. The party was at a nearby LifeTime Fitness. The kids had a lot of fun playing games and jumping in a bounce house.
Playing 'Red Light, Green Light'.

Playing 'Simon Says'.
