I love this picture...

I snapped it today as Bryn was running down the hallway. She is a girl after my own heart - my little princess who loves to suck her thumb and cuddle her blankie. Love.her!

Who's your daddy? Or mommy for that matter???

One thing I remember about growing up is how often my dad came home with a new dog he'd rescued from the pound. We always had at least two or three pets - most of them rescued. My dad had such a love for animals, and he instilled that love in us.

Rewind to last night - Ryan found this little guy wandering around our house. We're trying to find the owner by posting notices online and signs around the neighborhood, but I'm afraid this poor guy has been abandoned. So as of right now, "Duke" as we are calling him, is hanging out with the Neufelds and will do so until he is claimed or we eventually find him a home. Ryan is already pretty attached though - there's a chance he might just stick around.

Will's first day of school - 2009

We were up bright and early to get Will ready for his first day of school. Lucky for us, he was in school a good portion of the summer so there wasn't much of a break. It sure will be nice to be back on a routine again!

We are super excited about what Will will be able to accomplish this year. We're still seeing improvements from his chelation treatments, and now that he's back in school, we're really hoping his skills are going to take off. Fingers crossed - we'll keep you posted!

Our annual "staycation"

We just spent two eventful days at Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, TX. This is our second year going and we had a blast. Will just loves the water and waterslides. Bryn was a trip - she would lean back in her life vest and waited for me to pull her around the pool while she was reclining. That little girl is a trip!!! It was a fun way to spend a couple of days before Will starts school in a little over a week.
