What's up.......

Matthew's Game
Michael's Game

Our school auction-80' theme

I am so far behind in my blogging :( Things are winding down here for the end of the school year. May is so crazy, my birthday is next week, we are going away for a few days for our 10 year anniversary(1st time), we have several school events and our friends & parents are throwing us a 10 year anniversary party. Not to mention, baseball game mania.....

Our weather here was beautiful this weekend, almost hot. Our allergies are going crazy! Poor Michael has an ear infection, we went all winter without him seeing the Dr. and now it is the end of April, and he needs an antibiotic.
I will be watching my friends two girls until the end of May. Katie and Michael love each other, but fight like brother & sister. Sophie is a really good baby (17 months).
I made it through the 1 year anniversary of Mom's death. Natalie took me to lunch, two sweet friends sent me flowers and I had dinner that night with by brother. I was worried about my Dad, but he is doing great! I know that it is because of his incredibly strong faith!
Strange the boys had been mentioning Mom a little less, but this week Michael had brought it up several times.....
Our school auction was Friday night, the theme was 80's, we had a blast! I feel so thankful to have Matthew( and soon Michael) in a school where he learns about God and where we are surrounded by wonderful kids and parents.
Remodeling is coming along, our counter tops are in , the floors are done, our new stainless appliances will be in this week :) (Pictures to come...) Now I just need to pick a paint color! I am driving David nuts, it is so hard to find the "right" color!!!

I hope to be able to keep updating on a more regular basis :)
Happy Monday!!!!!!!!!
