March Snippets

March and April are always such busy months for us.  I usually just let the ole' blog fall to they wayside, but I'm trying to do better this year.

Here are a few March highlights that didn't get their own post.
 
David made this cool rocket ship at school.  I did not save it so I had to take a photo.  He loves all things SPACE!
 
 
Kid's watching Wreck-It-Ralph in our bedroom.  We affectionately call Luke "Wreck-It-Luke" because he is so destructive.  The movie is really cute and so is Luke!

 
Claire painted this picture in an after-school art class she took this winter.
 
 
Claire and David playing with our neighbor.  I'm not sure what this contraption was but they were all connected with jump ropes.

 
Claire and her friend Avery at church.  Twinkies!

 
David tries really hard to keep busy in the afternoons while I work a couple of hours after he gets home from preschool.

 
Sometimes I just put out a bunch of craft items and let him go to town!  It gets pretty messy!

 
And sometimes he spills a container of dry beans and pasta on the floor and dresses up like a pirate.

 
We played soccer this spring.  And it was cold for most of the games.  38 degrees the last game on April 20th!  We've had to bundle up this season. 
 
Claire finally got some PINK soccer shoes.  Before we've always gotten neutral shoes to pass down to her brothers.  I finally caved on the pink ...

 
Luke needs lots of snacks to keep him entertained at soccer.

 
And he has a nice big boo-boo on his cheek where he fell out of a chair at the kitchen table.

 
Claire went to a roller skating birthday party.  They wear me out!!  She had so much fun though, I had to drag her out of there.  After about an hour of skating round and round, she finally got the hang of it.  I'm just glad I didn't have to skate too.

 
Claire and McCall-the birthday girl!

 
It snowed on March 26th-the week of spring break.  Not much, but SNOW!  SPRING BREAK!

 
Luke and I got to hang out a couple of days while Claire and David were at spring break camp.  I've never been home alone with him much and we had a grand time!

 
Palm branches from church on Palm Sunday.  Luke was a big fan!

 
Claire looking cute in her MM shirt-sequins and all!  (You can't really see them in the picture but Mickey is covered.)   And she is always ready to strike a pose!
 
 
Will has been practicing his guitar here and there.  The kids like it when he plays "Our God" which is slow-going at times.
 
 
Claire has been making her bed every morning-a new chore.  It's not as neat as I would like it but it's made.  It's hard for me not to go in there and re-do it, but I'm trying to let those things go!
 
 
David has been working on riding his bike without training wheels.  He does pretty good but hasn't picked it up as fast as Claire did.  (I think Claire was older when we taught her.)
 
 
There he goes.

 
And down he goes.  We're not quite ready to move to the blacktop yet.

 
Maybe next month ...
