February is half over!

Well, February is half over and I am happy to report that it has been a much better month than January!  Carla has not had any raging fevers or extended illnesses.  We had a Superbowl party and the wrong team won, but at least we got to hang out with some great friends and eat a bunch of food :)  At the end of January Carla was able to attend Ryder's 3rd birthday party at the carousel in Helena. Carla is absolutely terrified of riding the horses on a carousel, but did face her fear and rode on one. Jeff stood with her and she was still scared, but did make it through the ride. She felt very brave to have faced that fear.

I have been attending "Listening Parents" in Carla's class, the past couple of weeks. They do it Monday through Thursday for about 20 to 30 minutes per day. I love going and listening to the kids read, they really enjoy it and the more they get to read, the better they get. Carla is actually a very strong reader, I think because we have always read to her before bed. Also, she loves her technology, so I'm sure that has helped her learn to read. This past Friday I attended her class Valentine Party. The kids were all hopped up on sugar and it was pretty funny to watch them all sugared up. After the party we went to town because Bobby and Carla both had eye doctor appointments. Bobby's eyes stayed the same but Carla has a slight prescription. She can see well with her left eye, but her right eye is a tiny bit blurry.  So, we ordered her the cutest pair of lavender glasses and she will get them in a week or two. She is excited. I am happy that she is excited, but have a feeling the excitement will wain after a period of time. At this point she only needs to wear them for school.

Carla and I will be headed back to Seattle Tuesday morning for a heart checkup Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. She also has an appointment with her vocal cord doctor on Thursday. We will come home Thursday night. As luck my have it, she doesn't have school  on Friday, so we don't need to be rushing around to get her to school on Friday.

Carla and I, taking a ride on the bench. 

Standing by the horse she was riding. (This one didn't go up and down, and she rode it a couple of times)

Excited about her bubblegum ice cream.

Uncle Jeff holding her tight so that she doesn't fall off the horse.  This one went up and down. 

She's so cute. 

Yes, more ice cream... this flavor was cotton candy.

Getting ready for the Superbowl. 

Our little Wright family (minus one).

Having a patriotic moment with Russell Wilson...

The Krafts

After getting my second MMR vaccination.  The measles scare has everyone on high alert, apparently in the 90's the CDC changed the recommendations regarding the vaccination. When I was a kid they recommended one MMR, now to be fully covered they recommend two MMRs.  So, I went and got my second shot, and now everyone in our home is fully vaccinated.
