Bluebonnets 2015

We found a lovely patch of bluebonnets and of course had to get the girls' picture.

 We found some lady bugs as we were headed back to the car. We had to look at them closely before putting them back in their home.
I really love the bluebonnets in spring! The girls and I always keep an eye out for them.

We celebrated Easter this past weekend in Oklahoma. We had a fantastic weekend! The kids dyed Easter eggs and hunted them. It was a really fun weekend for us!

March Flew By!

March was crazy busy too!We had more snow! Lizzie got strep and missed almost a week of school She went back to school on Friday and the next week was Spring Break! During this time, Gracie was sad to go to school without Lizzie. She worried about all the fun Lizzie was missing. Lizzie would ask me several times a day when Gracie would be home. They missed each other.

Lizzie finally feeling better and playing in the snow with Gracie.

We had a busy spring break. During the first part of the week, we headed to Alabama to see Wes' family. On the last weekend, we went to see my family to celebrate my dad's 70th birthday and my niece and nephew's baptism.

For my sister's family their spring break was the week after ours, so they came to visit. They got to see the girls school. The girls were so proud to show them around.

With all the rain and snow, the girls soccer season had a delayed start. They finally got to go to a practice and played their first game this past weekend.

After their game on Saturday, we went to the church for the Easter Egg Hunt. The girls loved it!
 Palm Sunday! The girls were so excited because they got to wear their cousin Sydney's old dresses. Several people asked we where I got them. The girls looked really pretty.

Palm Sunday was fun. First, Nana and I taught Sunday School. Then, the girls waved palm branches and then sang during the service. Palm Sunday is one of my favorite Sundays. I love the tradition of the kids waving the branches as they come in. Each time I teach Sunday School, the kids always teach me something new. I love their perspectives.
