March in Review
Edison helped himself to an ENORMOUS serving of Chex cereal for breakfast one morning!
I love how these two girls have such individual fashion senses – Florence was ADAMANT about wearing woolen mittens and purple sneakers to church!
Mark has worked incredibly hard over the past year and has lost over 45 pounds! He has started running 12-15 miles a week and has already completed his first 5K! We had to clean out his closet this month and buy him an entire new wardrobe. I’m so proud of him!
Grandma and Grandpa came up to visit for a week, and on one cold and dreary day we went to Hanging Rock State Park. We had a wonderful time! I just love this picture of my dad taking photo of the mist on the lake – he’s got such a genuine smile! I think he was making a joke or laughing about something one of the kids said. I am so grateful they were able to visit!
Happy kids on Easter morning – I didn’t realize until I looked at this picture that the girls dresses look like decorated Easter eggs!
This picture is so dear to my heart. My first baby, who is barely seven years old, has started reading the Little House books! Oh, I loved them so much when I was younger, and read them over and over (and over) again. I’m actually in the process of reading them aloud to the kids, and we’re on the fourth book. One day I told Amelia that she was reading well enough that she could probably read them by herself if she wanted, and I think she was shocked that I thought she could read such a thick book. She’s flown through plenty of books already (she especially loves the Circle C Beginnings series and the Magic Treehouse series) but she’s never tried anything this big. A few days later she dove right into the first Little House book, and I couldn’t be more proud!
My lovely new sister sent me some of her wedding pictures! Amelia and Florence were flower girls at their wedding back in November. Daniel and Andrea’s photographers are incredibly talented – these photos are such a treasure! Thanks, Aunt Andrea (and Uncle Dan) for sharing these memories with us!
