Spring Break

We have enjoyed a relaxing and productive break. Here are some things we have been up to this week off of school.

* Finished planting the garden.

* Slept late every morning, no rush to get dressed.

* Shopped for boy's Spring/Summer clothes, so nice to get that cheAlign Leftcked off!

* Took Otis to be neutered(poor puppy).

* Put away and organized boy's toys they no longer are interested in.

* Lunch at our new Chick-Fil-A. YUM!

* Baseball practice and uniforms purchased. Games start in 2 weeks!

* Updated my blog I have neglected for a month.

Batter up!

The boys enjoyed attending a Cal Ripkin Baseball Clinic sponsored by Chevy this weekend. Three hours of fun, fundamentals, and fair play! They came home pumped up with all their goodies: shirts, autographs, etc.

The good

Fresh starwberry pie

(made with sugar free jello, reduced fat crust)

The bad!

* We have begun getting the garden and the yard ready for spring.
* Boys helped pick out the plants/seeds we're going to grow!
* We have enjoyed special meeting and special visitors.(a very short, but sweet visit)
* Three of us have been under the weather with strep throat and sinus trouble. On the mend though! Lane has somehow managed to avoid it all!
* Baseball season has started.....Jay will be a head coach with both boys on the team for the 1st time!
* I took a quick road trip with Mom and Dad to Chicago 2 weeks ago. A trip mixed with joy and sorrow.
* Both boys made their AR reading goals this nine weeks.
* Spring break is just one week away! We are ready for some R & R and maybe a little work around the house.
