|Goin' for a walk with us!|

We have a new kitten as of yesterday! This was NOT planned and totally unexpected. Sean was driving home from school and saw this little helpless kitten on the side of the road. He stopped, trying to figure out what to do, when the kitten ran over to his car and basically got in. She is certainly skinny and looked homeless for sure. So, when Sean arrived home with a cat, I was not totally pleased at first. I am a planner, organized, like to think things through before making a decision kind of gal. But we ended up deciding to keep her as an outdoor cat. The boys are thrilled. They LOVE cats and have been asking for one for months. We always tell them no, not right now, it's not a good idea. Well, God has other plans, which makes me remember how we have no clue what is going to happen from one minute to the next. We are totally not in control. Ryan keeps telling us how God brought him a kitty and now that he has a kitty, he knows Jesus! lol Lily (what we named our new family member) is soooooo sweet. She is great with all 3 boys and with Allie, too. She is friendly, lets anyone hold her, and she loves attention. We are letting her stay in the garage right now since it's cold. We have a little crate for her and we got her some food last night. And the cutest thing EVER.......I took the boys for a walk today, Allie included, and Lily came, too! I don't think I've ever seen a cat go for a walk with their owner. She just followed right behind us the whole way. We are pretty excited to have her and couldn't have asked for a better pet......so far! Hopefully she sticks around!
