Hello March!

I'll start this post off with this random photo.  Any guesses as to what you're looking at?

Well. . . it appears that Andy has a mouse/mice in his car.  Or at least his glove compartment for sure. This package contained 50 communion wafers and the mice ate every single one!  We now have some traps set in the garage and I am feeling super relieved that they haven't discovered the van or made their way into the house!

Curtis's class took a field trip to a dentist.

He has perfected his "open wide".

During Graydon's swimming lessons, they had the kids jump off of the diving board.  Many of the kids ran across the board and jumped right in.  Graydon was a bit more timid, as you will see.  But he showed so much courage and was so proud of himself at the end.  And I was super proud too.


Feeling a little chilly at lunch time.

Daylight Savings started and now it's dark again in the mornings while we wait at the bus stop.

After dinner one evening, while I was getting the boys' bath ready, I came down the hall and found Curtis like this.

Big Sister got a little carried away with her markers.

I guess since he was about to take a bath anyway. . . why not?

And I scored a bathtime helper!

One afternoon, Curtis got stuck running more errands than usual with me.  He wasn't too happy about it until we were done and I treated him to a restaurant of his choice.  He picked Panera!  He has recently become a pretty big fan of their soup.

Andy's sister and family were in town for the weekend.  We've got our own little basketball team now!

Curtis just likes to be silly sometimes.  :)

The kids were out exploring in the little valley between our house and the church and they found this little critter.  People around here call them "crawdads".  I guess they're freshwater crayfish that showed up when all of the snow melted, leaving a little stream in that area.

More basketball!

And more exploring.

And then it was time to say goodbye.  Weekends go by so fast.

I surveyed the scene on our deck.  Within the last week, all of these items ranging from sleds and snowboards to crocs and shovels, had been used.  What a turnaround in the weather!

Our kids are now on Spring Break. We are enjoying a more relaxed pace this week and are also throwing in some fun family outings as well. Tomorrow, we're going to the zoo!
