We had our first little snow today…it was less than an inch really. Not a big deal except the children thought it was the greatest thing to ever happen. Gabriel woke up and came rushing into my bedroom, “Mama, Mama! There’s snow! It’s Beautiful! Come See!” As I struggled to wake up I heard him singing in the living room, ” See the Beautiful snow. See the Beautiful snow.”

Jade is always moving. After running, jumping, and throwing snowballs in our first snow of the year, my daughter tumbled face first into a mud puddle.
My sister and brother-in-law decided they they wanted to spend their vacation with us this past week of February. We are always delighted to have them. We always have the best fun together. We always have the best fun together. They live in the mountains of Tennessee and we go to their farm several times a year. Likewise, they come to Georgia to see us.
My son has been a dinosaur fanatic ever since he was 3 years old. This passion has spilled over into everyday life for us. What started out as a little boys interest has led to many museum visits, documentaries, puzzles, science experiments, internet searches, geography, mapping skills, and paleontology summer camps. As a family, we have all learned more about the Permian, Jurassic, Triassic, Cretaceous, and Pliocene time periods than we ever dreamed we would! Dinosaur means “Terrible Lizard” which is misleading because dinosaurs were not lizards at all. They are a separate group of reptiles. Additionally, many prehistoric animals, including pterosaurs, plesiosauria and dimetrodon are not classified as dinosaurs….yep, more than I ever thought I would know.
