Spring Times

 Life has been super busy with all kinds of programs, field trips & events.  Hannah was a wonderful bunny in her spring play.  She said all of her lines perfectly & she hopped like crazy! We practiced those lines & songs so much I think I have the whole thing memorized!  I can't believe she is finishing up second grade already!

 The kids found this snake one night.  Tyler came in to tell me & I kind of said ok, they must have found a little grass snake.  5 minutes later I went outside & I was shocked to see one so big!  Now I just hope it goes away. 

 Chloe is almost done with pre-k and will officially be in kindergarten next year.  Now that might be even scarier than that snake!  I had to take a picture of her hair this night.  With the humidity her hair goes crazy curls just like her moms!

And this boy...he will be in MIDDLE SCHOOL next year!  I'm not sure I'm ready for this yet.  He is enjoying growing out his hair to have a "real" hairstyle.  I didn't get any pictures because I forgot the camera, but I went to watch his track & field yesterday & he did awesome - he got three ribbons.  Way to go Tyler! 

Our summer is set to be a busy one.  I can't wait to see what God has in store for us.  He is so good & we are so wonderfully blessed.

Mother's Day

 The girls and I were able to go to a Mother/Daughter Tea on the Friday before Mother's Day.  It was so much fun to be able to get all dressed up and do our hair.  And go somewhere just the 3 of us.  Tyler was kind of sad and made me promise to do a Mother/Son time just for him. So we have to find a time for that.

The food was wonderful and the speaker was great.  But the favorite part for both girls was the chocolate fountain.  Chloe of course put chocolate on her plate, and swirled her M&Ms around in the chocolate and ate them by the spoonfuls.  She was a mess, but she loved it!  It was a blessing to see so many people that I knew there - thank you Nicole for inviting us to enjoy the night.

I wish I had gotten a picture with Tyler, but I didn't.  But I am so incredibly blessed by the 3 wonderful kids God has blessed me & Jon with.  By His grace, may He use me as their mother to help to continue to point them along the path of true joy, which can only be found in Jesus.
