Last Game of the Season

Our last soccer game was COOOOLD!
But we had a great time. The boys did great and had a lot of fun! They sure enjoyed playing against the parents for the last half. We had a lot of fun playing against them. Great exercise!

Ahhhhh it's quite time.

It is quite time at our house. The boys are suppose to be laying in their beds quietly reading books or resting. I hear plenty of talking but at this point as long as they stay in there and are not interrupting me it is AHHHHH quite time. I only have a sec as the house is a disaster. Grandpa Monte comes in at noon this Sat. The boys have their last soccer game that morning (Against the parents, it should be interesting.) Tonight I have bunco, tomorrow homeschooling and then date night. So now is really one of my only chances to 'spruce up', or rather accomplish the major overhaul that is needed. It is amazing how much damage can be done in one day!(Let alone 7, lol) I should take before and after pictures but I am still too proud to let all of the out of town family see what it is 'really like around here.' Good news is my dryer is working again after being down for almost 2 weeks. The kitchen sink is functional after being down for 1/2 a week. So my excuses are gone. Off to work. Till later.....

Spring is here!!!

Quick report for today so we can start this blog going. It is so fun to peak into friends lives through their blogs. I hope at the very least ours will be a journal and record of our everyday living.
Today started off slow. We got our couch returned as it was being repaired for damage done during our move.
The boys and I ate "orange smiles" and cereal then did school. Ammon is so smart and Kaleb hangs right in with him, always wanting to be involved. Hyrum is absorbing tons just by hanging around as I teach. I am finding a new grove and it is working. After school we made lunch and had a picnic outside. We read and acted our stories from our core curriculum "The Brave Bull Calf", a story from England.
We love it here it is so beautiful. All the trees and bushes are in bloom and we are so glad the LONG winter is over. We watched a crane fly in and land near our deck in the shallow water. The birds are so diverse, colorful finches, cardinals, blue jays, wood peckers..... We have squirrels, chipmunks, geese, etc... We are looking forward to seeing their babies soon.
Brandyn worked a long day and went straight to church for mutual. We hope to see him soon. The boys and I are about to make some popcorn and go downstairs to start a movie. It is late but we'd rather see dad before we go to bed. Till tomorrow.
