Spring is Sprung

Spring has finally arrived in La Grange.


Today was the first day of AYSO soccer and the first ray of sunshine we've seen in nearly a month.

The girls played the first game, at 8:15 am. Getting all four kids dressed and out the door on time was a major challenge. We never did find Harper's purple socks. But that didn't stop her from scoring a goal!

The boys played next, at 9:30.

Tate got to play goalie (Yes!)

The competition was fierce.

Then Fisher scored!!!!!!!!

It was up to Goalie, Tate to keep the score 1-0.

He did it! Great game, boys!

What if?

What if?

Today I was getting ready to walk the boys to the corner for school and we had to stop and put something in Tate's backpack before we left the house and I was explaining to Fisher he needed to wear his rain coat. I have to admit I was a little frustrated with them but I am no longer. Had I not stopped to put something in the backpack or convince Fisher to change his coat I wonder what if. No more than 15 seconds before we were on the sidewalk in front of our house a car came up onto it and hit a tree. The lady passed away. I stood and said a prayer for her and her loved ones and I said a prayer of thanks to God for giving me the patience to take the extra time with the boys this morning and sparing us.

Easter Part II

This Easter was a little backwards. We went to Church and then did a little yard work as it was our first nice weekend in a long time. We then ate dinner, had our Easter Egg Hunt and then dyed eggs. What can I say? It all got done and we had a nice backwards kind of day.

Yes, Tate stuffed all the eggs for the "hunt".
Fisher loved gardening with Peter and put his all into getting those weeds out!

Little Backyard fun!

Love this picture as Ellie is moving so fast in the background she is nothing but a blur!

All 6 of them!
Sorting their loot!

Dying the eggs!

Shrink wrapping Tate's Star Wars Eggs.
Go Blue!


Today is Fisher's first Easter with us. We decided this year to skip our huge Easter Egg Hunt and just have our family and Ruthanne and her boys over for a quieter, calmer Easter. We are missing Grandma and Grandpa and wish Annie and Theo where here to join in the fun with all the kids.

Here are a few pictures the kids would let me take of them before they peeled off their Easter clothes in search of play clothes to enjoy the sun and warmth we have today.
