 This week we finished up Harrison's basket ball season. Basketball has been his weakest sport in the past  but NOT anymore. He made 3-7 baskets a game, he has turned in to a great little athlete. Starting last winter he just turned on and he does great on any field or court. We have already started back to practice for spring soccer and baseball also starts next week so we will only have a couple weeks without games.

Snow Day fun with Friends

We have had a LOT of snow this winter and a LOT of snow days so we are trying to make the most of them.  Here is a little sledding fun.
 We have a street in the back of our neighborhood that still does not have house on it and it a long curvy hill but it was too steep so they did not get too much speed. They were able to sled about a forth of mile down the road.

 John enjoyed himself too.

 My job was to drive them back up the hill.
 Harrison said it was extreme!!!!

So for the past year ALOT has happened and I have NOT been updating this blog. My friend and I have our recipe blog and usually when I sit down a the computer that is where my time goes. I keep thinking I need to work on our personal blog, and just don't seem to get around to it. I SO enjoy looking back at past events on here and have found myself kicking myself more than once for not keeping track of events etc. SO I AM GETTING CAUGHT UP!!!! Keep in mind I have over a year worth of catching up to do.  I  have uploaded pictures from my phone while sitting in the car rider line and trying to go back and fill in the gaps. 2013 won't have the most detailed posts but at least when I look back years from now I won't think we fell in a hole for a year.

December 6th, 2012 we got the call that we were moving back to Kentucky and John was going to start a NEW State Farm office on JANUARY 1st 2013. So that started a whirlwind of moving, starting a new business, selling a house, finding a house, new schools etc.

We are back close to family and old friends which is great but I also notice it means that we are not making ourselves build new relationships. We have always been away from family and counted on friends to fill the gap so we are working on joining new friends and old dear friends.

Super Bowl ... flag style

 These boys made it the SUPER BOWL!!! This is a BIG deal and they were UNDEFEATED in the regular season  and in playoff. They did not come out with a win in the super bowl but they played hard and had a great season we are very proud of them all.

 And did I mention they had the greatest coaches. Firm, and expected ALOT from these boys, but LOVED them and had fun too.

Science table

Harrison LOVES science and this is a permanent fixture in Our breakfast nook, we call it his science table. You never know what will be growing there. In this picture there are seeds growing, tadpoles, butterflies and who knows what else. This is not what everyone has in their kitchen but everyone does not have a little red head wonder either.

Are you ready for some football?

Along with soccer this fall Harrison also played on a flag football team. He did great and the team was u defeated in regular season and playoff play. Harrison LOVED football and is looking forward to playing tackle next fall.
 This this the cutest group of tough boys every. These 5-7 year olds practiced 2-3 hours a night 2 or 3 times a week and played HARD each Saturday for games. This is a really special group of little boys, coaches, and parents.
 Harrison played much better than we thought he would, but he seems to keep surprising us when it comes to sports. We don't know where this ability comes from but he is becoming a Really good little athlete.

On the ground and getting flags.
 Harrison is the one with yellow and orange cleats.
 And he played wide receiver and he actually CAUGHT passes and ran the ball... we are so proud.
