Lotsa good news

So there has been A LOT going on in our house. 

Firstly, the night after our big ballet weekend, we came home and discovered our puppy Raven was in labor. The next morning, we had to go to our first week of homeschool co-op for the semester. Raven had a vet appt. to get an x-ray and see how many puppies she had inside of her. We obviously had to cancel that. We opted to leave Abigail home with Daddy, and while we were gone, Raven birthed this puppy pictured below. (Here is a video of her having this first puppy, that we are calling APRIL.)

Hours went by and there were no more puppies. We opted to take Raven to the vet. The vet did an x-ray and discovered there was one more pup hiding in there. They gave Raven some medicine and this little gal popped out. (And here is a video of that birth here.)

In addition to that news, our Elijah Luke "Sidge" turned 13 on the same day the puppies were born. This kid. I really need to devote a whole 'nother post to this amazingly compassionate, caring, truthful, diligent, intelligent young man. He is truly such a joy to be the Mama for!

A few days after that? Even MORE good news. Mr. Craig (aka "Erin's husband" or "Zach and Zoey's Daddy") returned "home" from his deployment to Quatar! It had been seven long months, and everyone is SOOO excited to have him back safely. This does mean, however, that there time on the farm is drawing to an end. In early March they will not their new base in California. Man, I can't even think about that. Here's a picture of Mr. Craig with the puppies. (He really likes them!)

Honestly, there is so much more to tell about our life lately, and it just doesn't seem like there is enough time to tell it. But I'll be back with more soon!
