April fun

Spring is in full swing and we have been busy: Ben's tball season has started, spring soccer is wrapping up and tryouts for next year have started, Rileybel got braces and facegear (only has to wear at home), and Nate completed a big research project at school.

Riley using the first aid skills she learned at Girl Scouts to take care of Ben's scrape.

Ludlow Visit

The Ludlows were in town from San Diego and came to spend a night at our house. It is pretty amazing when your friend of 31 years has three kids about the same age as yours and they love each other as much as we do!

The oldest - Matt and Nate

The middle sisters - Grace and Riley
The little brothers (and twins in looks and personality!) Ben and Cameron

March Moments

March with a busy month and I posted about the big are a few more moments we want to remember.

Nate the great!

My Nater

Nate was working on a poster project for school and then the kids worked together on this.

We had power washed the deck a few weeks ago and I was waiting for a few solid days of sun in the forecast before staining it. One night after soccer practice I decided it was time to stain the deck and recruited the kids to help (Mesh was out of town at a conference.) We worked from 6:30-9:30 and finished the side deck. Nate stayed by my side working hard the whole time. Ri and Ben helped at the beginning and then made signs to remind people to stay off the deck.  Great team effort!

We had a beautiful Easter at home dying eggs, hunting for eggs, attending Easter Vigil Mass, and enjoying goodies from the Easter baskets.
