We’re very blessed here in Kansas! I’m thankful for the Lord’s abundant mercies and His provision.
I’m going to let the pictures mostly tell the story with a little explanation below each.
Our Resurrection Sunday group!
Benji loves Ellie, and Ellie loves the children too. She likes to keep tabs on leftover food raining down from the highchairs! Here she’s enjoying some scraps.
Anna and Mary were blessed with an opportunity to do face painting and balloons for a church event. Here Mary did a volunteer’s face before everything began!
Yes, we had temperatures in the teens! Dad and Mom love working together on projects, so on free dump day, they took scrap wood to the dump.
Shopping the after Easter sales for Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes.
Sorry I forgot to put an Arnold + Ellie picture in last random post.
This cat seriously gets himself into the most unique places. Don’t worry. I made sure he could climb out, and he did.
Beautiful sunny, cool days!
And of course, the little nieces adore Ellie.
Yep! I mentioned we had snow three Sundays in a row, and this is proof.
Nathan and Melanie took a weekend away to go to our local homeschool conference. My sisters delight in watching the kiddos, so it was a perfect combo.
Daddy time so Mommy could concentrate on the conference.
Guess who they saw?!!! Christopher and Anna Marie (who went for a morning) and Melanie’s sister.
Back at home, the aunts’ creativity reigns here. Flashlight find n’ seek for the kids’ snack.
Some Ellie training.
A marching band through our basement. Yep! Ear protection was almost needed. Quite the enthusiastic bunch!
Enjoying baby goats!
Fellowship with an out-of-state friend.
Special aunt + niece time at my fave coffee shop.
Christopher’s family celebrating Anna Marie’s birthday.
Nathan and his kiddos out for a treat.
Jesse doing yard work.
Dinner at Joseph and Elissa’s.
This cute dog of mine! 🙂
A kids’ song about the walls of Jericho going on right here.
Tina is a little pro at dog training. She even has Arnold watching!
Nathan’s awesome to include his kids on work projects.
Sewing project with some company!
One of my top favorite snacks at the moment: vanilla yogurt topped with granola and fun chocolate pieces.
Nathan and Anna took a run the other day (Mary and I were unfortunately busy), and look what greeted them at the end. So perfect.
You can tell how our temperatures really jumped from cool to warm (notice Ellie’s tongue). We’re soaking in the amazing sunshine!
And now, these delightful evenings to enjoy family parties outside.
Calia showing Anna her plants which she helped Mommy (Elissa) to start.
Benji is like a cuddly teddy bear. Very, very cute.
Sooooooo, I’d love to hear what your favorite thing about spring is?!
