After the New Year, it was time to go back to school.
Kate and Chris jumped right into the excitement of Spirit Week at their school.
Even though it is January, the excitement culminates in a Homecoming Dance, since the school does not yet have a football team.
One of the days was a sports day of some kind:
and another was class color day: Chris's was white and Kate's was red.
We also decided some time ago that it was time to get a new pet to add to the menagerie.
Gracie was looking a little lonely.
So after many months of looking for just the right pet, we found her!
Sophie joined our home and has brought us much joy (and some annoyance) ever since (just like the kids!) lol
