Gleaming the Cube

Thrashers.  Konner doesn't even care that he has on pink Barbie knee pads.  And he's rocking them.  He just wants to be like big brother - who told him as they walked outside "come on Konner!  You're my best bud!"

Best Spring EVER

And it can only get better from here!  Prep for hikes, bikes, fun, sun, barbeques and a bunch of kids running around driving me crazy.  LOVE IT!

Keith is in little guy wrestling, and I love it!  He loves it too, of course.  But I may be a little bit more vocal in my enthusiasm.

He's doing great, but right now it's just about developing disipline, getting a little knowledge about how the sport is played, and learning to love it.  So I'm trying to not be too pushy.

But I have a habit to quizzing him about what moves he should use, or screaming BREAKDOWN! as we're walking in the mall. (this is when he has to get down into his wrestlers stance)

He loves it.

Guitars are blazing!

Kassy is learning guitar, and (if I say so myself) is doing really well.  I've tried to keep up with her, but she's already faster on those chords than I am.  She plays a mean twinkle twinkle little star.

Cheers for our creative outlets!

Father Daughter Ball

Had a great time last month at the father/daughter ball.  It's rare that I get some one on one time with the girls.  It seems there's always something going on, and we don't get to just sit and talk.  So it was a great night, and I could tell that they had a wonderful time.  I was grateful for the opportunity, and memories were made (especially teaching the girls the chicken dance.  That was hilarious).

Just Smile

When I can get my kids to smile, it’s the end. The awesome. It’s pretty much almost the best thing in the world. When they’re crying, it’s not so great. But I love the smiles. And I like to give them back as much as possible. I can tell they live for my smiles just as much as I live for theirs.

Winter is going...

Winter is on the way out, and we've had a great time.  Now we look toward the great times of spring.

Winter gave us:

Movie nights in front of the fake fireplace
The girls excelling at skiiing
The sledding day where Bubba went too many times
Bubba learning snowboarding for the first time
Christmas in the cabin
Getting stuck in the truck
Snowboarding lessons with Loni
Everyday memories that fade into one

Thanks winter!  See you next year!
