February is gone and we are on to March! Which means spring is that much closer. Hooray! This month flew by, and I think we quite enjoyed it. Valentines Day was good fun. We (mostly I) left special valentines for each other in our lovely heart mailbox. I even managed to make sugar cookies for the kids to decorate. They love it, but I can only bring myself to do it once or twice a year. I'm such a good mom;)
Sage was busy playing basketball this month. She had great fun and we loved watching her. Those girls are hilarious. They dribble about once every 10 steps and take a few minutes to set up their shot. She definitely learned a lot though.
We've of course been skiing a lot. The snow has not let us down this year. Its about time. Its also about time for the snow to start melting for spring. I'm ready...
The most exciting thing to happen this month though is that we got a goat!! Yep, you heard me right, a real live goat. Our neighbors of the last 10 years decided to sell their goat. Well, this goat is part of the family. We've lived by it for as long as we've been in Midway, so we couldn't let it go. We'd talked about getting one anyway to keep our pasture grass short, so now we have one a little sooner than planned. Yes, we're farmers. We'll be adding chickens to the farm in a couple of months. My dad said we should call the goat Rudy, and it stuck. So Rudy is now the mascot of the neighborhood. Everyone who comes over wants to see it. Gotta love farm life;)
