Wow. It's been a while since I've update you all on how things are progressing! I apologize - but MAN it's been a really busy month!!
On Friday, March 11, I had to drive to the coast to speak at our Regional Conference. A good friend of ours offered to take the kids, since I was simply going for the night, and coming back early the next morning. The kids had no school, so I planned on dropping them early and heading out - I was slated to speak at 2.
That morning, when I woke up and turned on the news, an earthquake had hit Japan (8.9) and had caused a 23ft Tsunami - wiping out large pieces of the island nation, and causing death and devastation. It was a sad and scary time - and they were afraid that we were going to get Tsunami waves at our coast. We had to wait it out, but long story short, there were no devastating waves hitting the Coast, and although we started late, the conference went off beautifully.
Sunday the kids and I walked the 5K in the Shamrock Run, while Chris ran it. It was raining (shocker) but we all had a good time.
Spring Break found us taking a few days off to head to the Great Wolf Lodge in Washington, where we had an absolute BLAST. I recommend that anyone take their children - it's so completely geared for them and so much fun.
We did some bowling, had family pictures taken, and then had to say good bye to Spring Break.
Back to school - and now the month is almost over. Things are going well here. We're all settling in. W started baseball and seems to have a knack for hitting! J is going back to gymnastics on the 4th. Things are settling in.
Tomorrow is April Fool's Day. Right now I have two bowls of cereal in the freezer - with milk, spoons already in! When I get the kids up tomorrow, I'll pour a little more milk on top and laugh as they try and get the spoons out to eat!! I can't wait!!!
