Life Is Good!

Life is good, it's not always great but ALWAYS good. Matt, the kids and myself are so blessed. We are are happy and healthy and made it through another Kansas winter! This is my favorite time of year, with all the new life around! There is a kill deer bird who even laid her eggs on the lot next us, so we have been keeping an eye on it. Such a cool lesson for the kids. Unfortunately Matt is traveling here and there, and bad things usually happen in his absence, like in October it was me contracting swine flu. Last month the car battery died and I was gratefully rescued by my dear friend Heather (and my own mechanic skills, I replaced the battery)! This time it's the water heater. Seriously. But even when things aren't great, life is still good. Our time is being spend outside on the yard, at the kid's events (soccer) and at church. What is better than that? Sadie even won 2nd place in a writing contest at her school. Wyatt has a career 6 soccer goals and Audrey, well her conversing skills are the most adorable I've ever seen. Now I am off to make dinner for my awesome family! Like I said, life is good!

I Admit It!

I am an awful blogger! A post every 3-4 months is not good. Especially since all the bloggers I follow post every 2-3 days! I just don't have to time (or energy) to do so. Speaking of energy, mine is returning with the sweet sunshine that has finally decided to come here to Kansas. Well, a bit of cold snap tomorrow, but the past week and a half have been great! Since I was last here so much has happened. We have kindergarten round-up for W this Friday, my little man is growing up fast! My brother got married in Idaho so the fam flew way up there for the event. And his baby is due in about 3 weeks. Do the math, I know, but we still love him! What else? Easter was just here and we did 3 hunts in one day. And while they are fun I don't get super excited about them because it's not the meaning of the holiday. But the kids know the reason, which melts my heart. I heard them discussing it in the backseat one day, so cute. From here on out we have kite days, zoo days, family fun night and other kinds of activities at school. Add that in with sports and church, we are a family on the go for sure. Life is good. We are happy, healthy and ready for what comes our way. My kids are so fun at their ages now. Really, lots of fun, makes me sad to think they all be grown up some day.

And just for giggles today Wyatt asked me why Carrie Underwood doesn't know her last name!
