Ah, spring. The lovely weather, the flowers, the warm air returns from the south - such a lovely time of the year. For our family, it also means:
Putting on our game face (their coaches have them practice this face - it cracks me up):
For T-Ball practices and games:
Going on Field trips:
With our best friends:
Lots of playdates at the park (this was actually the same day as the previous photos - because I don't usually take my camera every time we go to the park...):
I've found that when I'm busy and set my kids to learning on their own, they come up with things like this:
And somewhere in the past few weeks, my daughter has musically become a 'tween:
And dance practice, and gymnastics, and weight loss meetings (I'm down a total of 28 lbs as of last night's weigh-in!), and church, and picnics, and swim lessons, and a girls weekend, and a trip to Buffalo for Bee, and hanging with these guys:
And lots of adorable hair styles that I just haven't taken the time or effort to photograph and post here. Sorry about that. Here is one I did last week which turned out so cute. You can find it here: http://dostochoose.blogspot.com/2010/03/quick-and-easy-barbie-bun.html
We made our bun sock a little bit smaller - but here are our results:
I thought this was so pretty - but it was a one day 'do. By the next day, it had mostly fallen out. So pretty though, for the day it was in!
I guess this is all to say that we've been busy. Good busy. I'm not complaining - not even a little bit. I'll be the first to tell you that my life is a blessed one. My hubby is good to me, and as we joke, I'm a "kept" woman. I've just had less time to blog the past few weeks. Here's to hoping that we get back to it!
I hope your spring is just as exciting and fun filled as ours has been!
