It's crazy how fast the month can whizz by isn't it? Hard to believe it's almost May and summer is almost here! Here's little peek of what we've been up to in April:
Here are the girls on Easter morning, and one boy. See the REAL bunny that my daughter brought home from college? No, they are not supposed to keep bunnies in the dorm. If she doesn't get caught before school's out then guess who is bringing home a bunny for the summer?
This is Rose's chapel program. (she's the tree on the left) Such a sweet program about 3 trees with high hopes. Rose was the first tree who wanted to be made into a beautiful chest and hold precious treasure, but the woodsman made her into a manger and she ended up holding the most precious treasure of all, baby Jesus.
I will miss this lady though. We have spent countless hours together planning, decorating, making mums... She taught me everything I know about being a cheer mom. We're going to write a book, "Everything you ever wanted to know about being a cheer mom, but were afraid to ask". :)(and yes, we were crying when I took this picture)
We signed Rose up for softball, not really realizing how many games they would play. Notice she is facing away from the actual playing field? She's much more interested in prairie dogs that might pop up out in the dirt than she is in fielding balls. Kevin very sweetly told me after practice one day that she has her mother's athletic ability. Needless to say, I think this will be her one and only softball season. :)
The circus came to town and it was Rose's first time to go. I forget how much fun the circus is, the grown-ups enjoyed it as much as the kids. Roses's favorite was the little weenie dogs, but I've always loved the elephants. Watch out, look who's driving! She has had a countdown on the bathroom mirror, with a dry erase marker, marking the days until she turned sixteen. It's a little sad though, I'll miss picking her up from school and hearing all about her day. Rose's first sleepover party. I asked her the next morning if she missed me and she said, "no, I was having too much fun". It won't be long and she'll be driving too. Okay, really it will be another 9 years so I guess I still have some time!
Powderpuff volleyball games last night. The seniors won and had to play the coaches. It was pretty funny how badly the coaches wanted to win, especially our volleyball coach! You can't see it but I put a band on his hat that says "Big Kahuna". He's a great guy, we are so lucky to have him as our coach. That's Grace on the right, doing her head tilt pose. :)
Okay, well no creativity to post today, but soon, I promise.
