(The above picture is a photo of the McDonald kids on our six week trip around the nation last summer.)

Health report:
My father and mother have been a bit under the weather of late. Mom had a low grade fever last night, but it's gone now. Other than that, everyone's great.

Weather report:
Well, it's raining right now. I like rain when I'm outside, but when I'm inside it's really gloomy. Yesterday was bright and windy (ideal weather, if you asked me!) and hopefully tomorrow will be the same!

This year should be pretty busy (not quite as busy as last year, though)! We'll be making our way to many different states, including Missouri, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Michigan, ect. It should be fun. We're going to try to visit Plymouth Plantation again, as well as the home of Laura Ingalls Wilder. And we're going to drop through Boston, and maybe visit a thing or two there. So we're bound to have our plates full.

Last night some of the family (Tiff and I stayed home with the little ones.) went to go see Eight Below over at the theatre. I'm supposed to go see it tonight with Tiffany but I'm still not sure about it. I got mixed reviews. Some dear friends of mine told me it was wonderful, my mom said it was badly acted and not worth seeing, Melissa said it was just plain stupid, and Christa loved it. So if you've seen it, feel free to comment and tell me if I should see it or not! I don't want to waste my money if it's a worthless movie.

So, I guess that's about all that's been happening. More interesting things should start happening soon, or hopefully start happening soon! :) And when they do, I'll fill you in a bit more.

St. Patricks Breastplate

Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

Happy Belated St. Patricks Day!
