April: The newsy news field editors will be researching what it’s like to take ones self to a concert, unpaid for by the newsy news company.
May 3rd: the first annual Sucker Run begins at dawn…or whenever the suckers choose to start running. (it’s a marathon) Registration is open all day starting at 8am, bring a white T-shirt we can write your number on.
June 21st: The 5th annual cattail party and newsy news 7th birthday party begins at dawn and last’s until the mosquitoes go to bed at 11pm. As this is a very special 5th annual cattail party, we have taken the liberty of buying recycled T-shirts which we will be giving to all who attend. As usual the party barge will be involved as well as mamas pond and fireflies.
July: We’re keeping July completely open for the other oldest child cousin. But the silly sister’s will no doubt take their annual bath.
August: The newsy news field staff is contemplating doing research on mountains and gold…or preferably, mountains of gold. The favorite parents and the silly sister’s will work their 2 weeks for the year.
And that’s as far as we’ve planned so far…As usual, newsy reserves the right to change its plans with little or no notice. The only event that is concrete is March, April, May, June, July, and August…all other plans are entitled to cancellation without notice.

Goal 1. Get dressed
Goal 2. Take a nap
Goal 3. Post a blog
Goal 4. Pack for Texas
Goal 5. Go sledding
Goal 6. Restring bows
Goal 7. Plan the sucker run
Goal 8. Find a shovel
Goal 9. Shovel a roof
Don’t worry, the middle child and the youngest child have no intention of achieving all of these goals on the same day or even in the same week…but someday they’d like to attempt them.

This is the famous hunting archer, we actually had the honor of staring at the back of his head for 9 straight days, really, we’re living the big time now.
This is our favorite friend from Idaho. Even though we caused him no end in grief from his neighbors he was still kind enough to let us get a picture with him.
This is our neighbor with perhaps the most interesting product…but we’re not about to go into it…
This is our Utah neighbor…okay, so he was about 50 booths down and a building over, but like we said before, we reserve the right to exaggerate as much as we want. He was kind enough to put up with our daily walkabouts which were taken for the soul purpose of retaining our sanity at the loss of others.
These are our neighbors from 5 booths down and one building over, they were kind enough to feel badly for the youngest child when she couldn’t talk.
Our neighbors from across the way, whom we reserve the snickers for…they were kind enough to not make fun of us like other peoples neighbors do.
This is the youngest child contemplating a career change…a good neighbor was kind enough to allow the youngest child to practice on her shoe.
This is the middle child sporting a real knife.
This is the silly sister’s racing in Australia, the ugly bird won.
And now you know the rest of the story.

After four straight days of –20, the silly sister's were convinced something had to be done. So at 9pm while the full moon was high and the night was bright the silly sister’s went sledding.
Boy those snow banks were hard. Now that doesn’t mean the silly sisters crashed…goodness! How silly! No indeed, the snow bank at the bottom of the hill has been made to go over…but boy was it hard! And the landing, you wouldn’t believe the landing! The snow is so hard the sled actually comes to a dead stop after going over the snow bank, while the poor silly sisters continue to fly through the air for a good five more feet.
Sorry, no pictures of the bruises have been provided for us at this time.

The youngest child may seem rather pale but she was a whole 5 seconds away from fainting, she had time to see the picture before her vision narrowed too much.
The middle child is the happy child who reaped all the benifits the picture had to offer for the day...

She’ll be four by then…and if she could only start landing the quads’ we’d have nothing more to worry about..
