Easter Update

It's been a full month!  We have enjoyed Easter Egg hunts, a trip to Blue Baker with the Tiger Cub Den (they let us bake bread), clearing cactus at my sister's farm, a field trip to McKinney Roughs (Timmy when tubing and learned about water conservation while I took the younger two hiking), STEM day at the Scout center (lots of math, science, technology, and engineering activities), and a camping trip to Guadalupe River State Park.  I'm ready for a nap!  Next weekend is Lucas' musical, Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  He's been working hard on it for months, so come support him!

Happy Easter!

He is risen!  We took a drive yesterday to Marble Falls to eat at the Bluebonnet Cafe, pick strawberries, and take pictures in the flowers.  Enjoy!

First quarter update

How is it March already?  Time is flying by and we've been busy.  Since the new year began, we took a fun vacation in January, our youngest started walking, and we decided to enroll our oldest in school (finally).  I retired (or surrendered) from teaching him the same day Pope Benedict announced his resignation from being Pope.  And I think we're both much happier now.  I'm enjoying having more time with the little ones and taking more field trips.

Besides school, Lucas is working hard getting ready for the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory musical which runs May 4-6.  See here for more information or to buy tickets.  Here are a few pictures of what we've been up to.  They have captions for more details.

I love enjoying time at home over the Christmas vacation.  (I keep trying to go shopping, but no one wants to go with me.  I live in a house full of boys!)

Joshua's first birthday

Hard to believe that Joshua is already a one year old!  We had fun celebrating with family today.  We love you Joshua!

December adventures

We have had a busy month, but I forgot to take pictures for most of it.  Here are the few things I did catch on film.

overdue update: Thanksgiving visit

Doug's mom and nieces spent about 2 weeks with us around Thanksgiving.  We had a nice Thanksgiving dinner at my mom's house and spent a lot of time watching the kids play.  We took them to the Oasis near the end of their visit and took pictures with the statues.  It was a fun visit.

overdue update... baseball

Timmy has had last baseball game just before Thanksgiving.  He had a great season, it was fun watching him play!  But I noticed in the pictures that he closes his eyes when swinging the bat.  That might explain his batting average.
