The Latest!

Spring is here and with it comes lots of activities. This past week, Landry Grace had an Easter egg hunt with her class, we went to Dinner and a Movie at Lincoln Parish Park that was hosted by the Ruston Junior Auxiliary(great job, by the way!! Our favorite year yet), and then celebrated Aunt Lou's birthday in Bossier yesterday.

Making a Jake sandwich! One of the kids favorite thing to do.

Our beloved Ms. Cindy. She is moving to Dallas this summer to earn her Montessori teaching certificate and plans to stay there. We will miss her so much!
Big D came to watch LG hunt eggs. The rule was only to find 10 eggs, but my dad kept giving her more eggs. Hard for grandparents to keep boundaries in any capacity!! Love you, Big D.
Some of her classmates. They had such a fun time.
Me and Landry Grace
With Leigh and Camille. Landry Grace and Camille have the exact same birthday! these all seem to be of LG:(. I SO try to be even and fair, so my apology goes to my children! This was at Dinner and a Movie. There were lots of booths with activities.
Jake's preschool sang some songs for the audience. He was thoroughly enjoying himself!
LG with one of my students from school, Camron. They were fast friends on Friday and watched Yogi Bear with us.
Saturday morning we were up and at 'em early. Jake was in full astronaut gear and we took advantage of the gorgeous weather! We also had a soccer game later that morning and their team won again. Jake also scored his fourth goal of the season while Landry Grace is a little over the soccer thing:).
After the game we freshened up and got ready to head to Shreveport/Bossier for the afternoon. They wanted to pose in front of their new yard signs.
Happy Birthday Aunt Lou!!!!

We are SO looking forward to Spring Break this next week! Matt and I have a trip planned to Vegas and LA next weekend and then we are taking the kids to New Orleans the following Thursday for the Broadway production of the "Lion King". We will also be visiting family in Baton Rouge on the way home. It will be nice to have a small break and then celebrate Easter the following Sunday back home with our family.

Mid-March update

We are into the middle of March and I still have not been consistent with my blog posts:(!! Last week, Landry Grace and Daddy had a Beary Special Banquet at church. LG hasn't stopped talking about it and had a great time with her daddy and friends. Me and Jake went to eat crawfish and then yogurt. I think it's very important to have some one on one time and we did just that!
Sunday night we went to see Zac Brown in concert with some friends. That was a lot of fun, regardless of the fact that we didn't get home until after midnight and I was still at school by 7:30:).

And today marks 1 month until Boston. This marathon training has flown by! So thankful that I've had 2 partners who've split the long runs with me, so it hasn't been all that bad. Wish they could run the race with me, too!

Happy Friday!!!

Another Belated Update

So lately, we've been able to visit with Matt's Uncle Frank who was in from Baton Rouge. The kids were full of personality and we enjoyed catching up with him.

Landry Grace also had Grandparent's Day at school in which my parents were present. Mom said she looked over at her and she'd taken her dress off during her lesson. Needless to say she's going to have somewhat of a transition next year at the pre-k center. She certainly has a mind of her own.

And we've also been able to watch Daddy call some baseball games. He umpires local high school baseball games and the kids love to see him on the field.

And the last picture just makes me smile. This was taken with schoolmates last fall. Oh, what will Friday nights be like in 10 years!
