Oh my stinkin' heck. While I am BEYOND happy that Spring is here and we are getting more sun and warm enough days that the snow melts shortly after it falls now, could the days slow down just a tad?!
Actually part of me is happy that March just kind of flew by. It's been a month. I love April, because all the crazy stops for a few weeks, and we get the pleasure of Spring Break before everything goes in to overdrive for the end of the school year when every teacher, administrator and PTA person decides that we must now get every single activity that we can possibly come up with in before the school year ends even if it means scheduling something every day of the week and scheduling some things so that they overlap.
But hey, only 42 school days left till Summer vacation!
So, what happened to March?
Sam turned 7 months.
We got a little bit of snow.
Basketball season wrapped up.
Knowledge Bowl competitions for the girls.
(even more amazing when I look back to last year and never dared dream it would happen)
Weekend runs creeping back into double digits-Yay again!
Sam's first outdoor swing.
Pi Day. Celebrated with 3.14 pieces of pie of course. Key Lime and Coconut Cream.
Student of the Month
Sewing a dress for a neighbor who was in a pageant
(I WISH I had a picture, she looked fabulous and it was fun to see the dress come together so perfectly!)
*almost* done transforming the girls' room....pictures to come when I finish the bedding.
Midweek date with my love to watch the Cougs in the Sweet 16. Saddest OT ever.
(But hey, still gotta love Jimmer!)
Ate fried rice out of a giant bowl.
After which I introduced Aaron to Phineas and Ferb. My new favorite thing for the kids to watch.
It was warm enough (almost) that I kicked back on the lounge chair in the backyard to start working on my tan. Yes really, and yes, in a swim suit. After all that snow you saw was it really warm enough? Meh.....that's debatable. But darnit mid 50s sure felt like paradise for about 30 minutes. Mid to upper 60s this weekend? Oh yeah. I'll be laying out again. Bring on the sun!
Also, I may have found the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe.
For the grand finale, Aaron is now officially halfway done with nursing school! And he has this week off. Oh what joy to have my husband come home from work last night and not have class or homework! The kids were beside themselves with excitement that dad was home. Just one more year....just one more year....just one more year....
(for now I'll avoid thinking on the BSN and whatever else follows this one more year)
And yes, eventually I'll still post that Dr Suess party we had. After I repaint the kitchen and dining room. and maybe my older boys' room.
