Kallie has such a drive to learn. She loves doing school work, practicing writing, reading...really anything she can do to learn. Kallie is such a sponge right now soaking up everything that comes in her path. Today we took the opportunity to do a few Easter and Spring crafts to practice her motor skills. Of course she did great for a 3 year old but one thing she did really impressed me. Kallie wrote her name today by herself. Right after writing her name she picked up one of her favorite books and started reading it. I know most of it was probably memorized but still I am so proud of her and she amazes me, continually. My little girl is growning up fast.

Santa brought Kallie a Disney Princess Scooter for Christmas. So when we got sent to Maryland we loaded the Scooter so Kallie would have it. It takes coordination to ride the scooter....you have to balance, steer, and make it over with one foot. Needless to say it has taken some work for Kallie to figure it out but yesterday she finally accomplished her scooter. She was so cute. I am proud of my wonderful daughter.

Spring is coming....I know our family and friends in Texas might protest to this statement though. In the last week the trees have started budding out and they are beautiful. Everyday that the weather permits, Kallie and I go to the play ground and let her burn off energy.These gorgeous trees boarder the play ground. We have also watched the biggest flock of geese I have ever seen fly over making their way North, so hopefully Spring is coming.

On January 20 we had a new nephew born, Reed Andrew Gibson. We got to go down to see him, but I forgot my camera so I haven't had any pictures to post of him. And now for almost a month we have been working in Maryland so I haven't got to post any pictures of him. Well today we received a few updated pictures of the little man so I wanted to share them with you. Reed weighted 6lbs and 11oz when he was born and by looking at the pictures he has grown quite a bit.

Today Kallie received 2 boxes of LOVE from Popaw and Mamaw. She was so excited that I had to carry her Princess Scooter from the office to the RV so she could carry her package. She couldn't wait to open it and dive in. Thank you Popaw and Mamaw for the goodies and the warm, very stylish Winter Boots, to which she loves and looks cute in.

Ever since we have been in Maryland it has been super cold and snow on the ground. Slowly the snow has melted except the large piles and the winter chill was still in the air. Today we woke up to SUNSHINE, beautiful sunshine so Kallie and I decided to take advantage of it. We walked around the park and let Kallie burn off some energy at the playground. This is one of the nicest playgrounds we have had at a RV park. Kallie had a blast swinging, sliding and climbing. There is a little waterfall right next to the playground and I just had to take a picture and share it with everyone too. It is amazing how the sound of the running water can calm you and help you to relax.
