Joshua's Great Expectations day

Josh played the blacksmith.  They acted out scenes from the book on stage for parents/siblings. He is NOT a fan of performing, but did well!

Coyote report

Lydie worked really hard on her coyote report and poster. She was so proud of it and read her oral report a dozen times, making sure she was completely prepared. I love her enthusiasm about her school work!

Spring break staycation

We went to some yard sales. We found this bag of buttons for $1 that provided a whole day of art inspiration!

Met the cousins at the science museum!

Lunch together a few times

We saw Cinderella- my favorite movie in a long time. LOVED IT!

These two crazy girls!

Chronicles of a "Snow day" that had no snow until bed time

 Early morning nerf wars.

 Legos. Everywhere.


Lingering over the Word and coffee.

 The boys eat SO.MUCH.FOOD on days at home. SO MUCH!!  The 9am.
 Pet shop anyone?
 Taught himself Fur Elise, by ear.  You know, just to pass a little time.
 Food. More food.

 Scavenger hunt in the sleet and ice that I wrote for them.
 Cookies.  Cause they need to eat again.

 Theme of the day:food.
 Beauty shop
 And finally.  After a cancelled day of school for quarter of an inch at 9pm.

Very exciting, still, for my southern girl!

Andy's 40th birthday

 Andy turned 40 on March 3rd.  The kids and I had an idea to celebrate for 40 days.  That was a lofty ideal.  Between Andy's travel, snow and ice, and various illnesses, we missed a bunch of days.  But he did have a lot of celebrations.  We gave him a bunch of little gifts along the way: clothes, basketball tickets, dinners out, candy, etc.  Here are a few...
 College basketball night with all of us

Sushi lunch date with me
Dinner date to the Melting Pot with Lydia Joy
He also went to a Brazilian restaurant and movie with his Dad and brother, the Pita Stop with my parents, and a local bbq restaurant with Jack.  For his gift, his Dad took him on a quail hunt with some men in the family.  I think he had some fun celebrations!  Happy 40th, baby!
