Day 94

"Work Day"
An exciting time for us at the church.....We got a BUS!!!!    It's so fun to see our kids excitement as they help daddy peel letters off, wax the bus and get it ready for the road.  They all were super excited to actually drive it to church Wednesday night.  Praying we are able to use this tool to help reach more children with the gospel.

Day 93

"What a FUN night"
Usually when Daddy goes to do a project and fix something we tag along.  Tonight was one of those nights.   As he was fixing the bus...we ran around the woods, rode a horse, and took many pictures of us being silly.  Fun night for us that we will remember for a long time!

Day 92

"Cast Off"
After one full month of not bending his hand or fingers....he was released from the dreaded, camo, cast.   He was very excited to have it off and be able to move everything again.  Also to be able to play his video games better and of course use his pencil for school again (well mom added that one in).   Hopefully we won't see a cast again (well at least not on Evan).  Let's keep our fingers crossed!

Day 91

"Thinking of You"
Today, Elizabeth left this flower that she made on my desk with a nice letter. She is so sweet!

Day 90

"Happy Birthday & Yoda ears"
As the weeks and days quickly pass by...yet another birthday to celebrate.  Today was Nathan turning 6.  WOW!  Time does fly by so quickly.  It's always a great to get together & have fun and get a good laugh or two in.  Today we had a good chuckle with the yoda ears!  Kelly is very creative and always makes such neat and cool cakes/cupcakes!  Till the next birthday.....

Day 89

"Super sized?"
Wow...things really change since I was a kid and Happy Meals are one of them.  They are now serving smaller fries and apples with their meals.  The government regulations and push for the younger people to be healthier has now invaded our happy meals.  The good thing kids didn't notice the difference....(except the older kids).

Day 88

 What a neat tree!!  The kids would love to climb this one!

"Signs of spring"
We LOVE to take walks as a family and there are days when you really notice all the beauty in God's creation.   Spring is in the air and there are so many wonderful things to observe along our walk.  Like the saying goes....."you gotta stop and smell the roses".   Today we did just that, tried to find pretty spring flowers and unique things in His creation!

Well today of all days to have the camera....we didn't!  We all got to enjoy a special treat to the Chinese Buffet for lunch!  Yum!  We probably missed out on a ton of great pictures, but we happen to save a fortune cookie and some chop sticks!  We all had our fill and enjoyed a special afternoon doing something different.

Day 86

"Free Rita's"
First day of spring which means FREE Rita's water ice.  It's the time of the year that we look forward and enjoy getting a special treat we don't usually get.  We got to try different flavors like Swedish Fish & cotton candy!  A great way to say goodbye to winter and hello to spring time!

Day 85

"2 Walks"
Such a beautiful day...couldn't help but take two walks.  One in the morning with Troy and then another one with all the kids.  Taking a walk with a 17 pound baby makes for a big workout and later a hurt back!  Next time...we'll do the stroller.

"Learning Something New"
Well I really enjoy learning about the night sky, and tonight I learned the most interesting things..... these two bright things in the picture aren't stars, but planets. The planets are Venus (the brighter of the two) and Jupiter (the less brighter one). I just thought that it was a neat fact.
