My monthly post!

It seems like I am averaging about one blog post per month...sorry mom! Not sure if anyone reads this besides my mom:).

We have been busy!

Our family has been busy with a few archery tournaments! The kids all did well! Sean and I are doing our best--while trying to help the kids at the same time. We have our third tournament coming up this next weekend!

We started back with our homeschooling co-op! We love, love, love our co-op group! We have such good teachers and classes that are being offered. I coordinate the co-op, so I am just in one class this semester--Tall Tales!

Easton in Botany

Landon hit 6 months! He is extremly busy! He started crawling and pulling himself up on things like chairs and stairs. He loves baths and showers. He enjoys playing with his brothers and sisters as well. He loves to eat baby food! So far he hasn't rejected anything yet! I need to weigh and measure him...but judging by how small his pants are getting I would say he has grown quiet a bit over the past month. He is just about the sweetest little guy!

School has also kept us busy! We have about a month left! I love our routine, but we are all looking forward to when the pool opens back up!

The girls and I have enjoyed a few concerts over the past few months! The last one featured Toby Mac and other great Christian artists! Our church is hosting someone HUGE (to us) this fall--so stay tuned!! We are soooooo excited about it!

The kids are finishing up classes at the Stuhr Museum. Katelyn has the final class this next week! I had the privilege of attending two classes this past week. My mom was here to watch the other kids, so that was nice that I could attend.

Spring baseball and softball has started for Katelyn and Easton...so that will be our evenings until mid-June! They both enjoy playing!!

Easton turns 7!!!

Easton turned 7 today! He is just about the most energetic little boy around. Well I guess he is not so little anymore! Easton is my helper! When he is sick, I miss him not being around. He is always fixing things and putting things back together! He enjoys archery, playing baseball, hunting, fishing, and soccer! He likes playing legos and k'nex! I have a feeling he will do something in the field of engineering, just like his dad!!

Easton had a "special day" with his friend Owen on Sunday. He came to church with us, out for pizza, shot archery, and played here all day. On his birthday he wanted to go to Coney Island with my sister and myself...and to the bank.
Here are a few pictures of Easton from this past weekend and from past birthdays!

Blizzard!

It has been a while since we had a blizzard here! A few weeks ago, Grand Island had the second largest snowfall on record for the city...21.6 inches! It was craziness! The city was basically shut down and the roads were impassable. People-- including plows were getting stuck going where they thought they needed to go. It was nice not having anywhere for the kids and I to go--even though Sean still went to work each day. He is a trooper!

The kids have had a lot of fun playing in it! We have only one hill in Grand Island to go sledding on, but it was so windy snow didn't stay on it, so the kids had to improvise with mounds.

Cars kept getting stuck on our corner. This just happened to be one of Sean's employees
