This is Lolli's first year as a Daisy so she gets to sell Girl Scout cookies. She sold an impressive 59 boxes to friends, relatives and neighbors (including a video sales pitch on Lauren's Facebook) and then Gma Morgan sold another 80 boxes at her work. Way to go, Lolli!!
Poppy's kind of picky about foods (she'd drink her daily calories if I let her) so I knew it was sort of asking for trouble when I put avocado chunks on her plate with her dinner. But instead of throwing a fit, she told me that even though she doesn't like avocado, she knows it's healthy for her so she was going to eat those first before her other food and not even complain. And she did!

Indiana is having one of the worst winters in history. We had to cut our Florida trip a day short just to get home and literally be snowed in for an entire week (yup, FIVE snow days that week!) and it just won't quit. The bright side? Oz is so happy with all these snow days and 2 hour delays! That's less time he has to spend wandering around the house and looking out windows saying, "Lolli? Poppy? Lolllllllliiiiiiii?!? Popppppppyyyyy?!?"

"I wanted to tell you just how much I love having Lolli in class. She is such a sweet girl. We learned all about Martin Luther King Jr. yesterday. She shared with the class that "he had a plan that all brown people be just like the peach people". It melted my heart. Thank you for being such a wonderful role model for her. I truly enjoy her sweet, large heart." :)

Today was a very sad day for Lauren and the kids. Over the weekend Boo had suddenly become very lethargic and thin. Lauren and the kids took her to the vet this evening and their worst fears were confirmed - the best option was to euthanize her. Lolli took the news pretty hard and of course Lauren was a wreck. Boo was such a good cat! But 15 years is pretty old for a cat so they said their goodbyes and see-ya-laters with a smile. We miss you, Boo!
