I scream, you scream

Tonight, Dad took Will, AC, and I to Brusters. It was so good :). AnnaClaire got her very own free baby cone. She loved it! The whole way to Brusters, she said over and over, "I LIKE ICE CREAM! DO YOU LIKE ICE CREAM? ANNA LOVESSSSSSS ICE CREAM!" She cracks me up sometimes. Once we got there, she excitedly told the lady that she wanted "Ice cream please!" The ice cream was thoroughly enjoyed after a fun evening in the sandbox!

Did I mention we had to dissect a frog in biology class today? Can you say disgusting? Oh but I left out the fact that Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, we are dissecting a SHARK. Ew.

On another note, my heart continues to hurt for China today. China will always be a part of me, having a sister from there. No one should have to go through the pain and hurt of seeing their child, their only child die from a terrible earthquake; or anyone for that matter. The death count has already surpassed 12,000 and that just tears at my heart. I really want to share something that another blogger wrote. Please go here to read it. This is a really powerful and true post... about why God allows bad things like this to happen. Continue to keep China in your prayers.

Cute pictures!
I think dissecting a frog is cool and a shark is better!!
We had to touch a cow heart in biology class once, and we had to find and name every part of it, It was cool :)

I wanted to leave you a comment as I've been following your blog regularly for a year now. I remember the first time I read it with tears streaming down my face, reading the story of precious Anna Claire. I haven't been able to tear myself away since...I am now blessed with a daughter of my own (in addition to 2 wonderful boys--much like your own family) and I just had to tell you that I would be delighted if she grew into such a wonderful person as you. Your mom must be so very proud of you. Thank you for taking us on this journey through your eyes. Its a pleasure to read. Your family is so sweet.
Thank you for sharing!!
