I love this picture. The kids love having their grandparents spend time with them. Believe it or not, we did try to have Emerald in the picture. She was doing her usual, no picture attitude.
Calvin trying to get "down, down". One of his favorite phrases.
We are finally having spring-like weather. I dug out shorts this week and started packing away sweaters. Yes, we are not used to waiting this late to do this act. Usually by mid-February we have our spring stuff out. The trees are blooming, flowers are popping up, and we are spending lots of time in our backyard. Skip's parents were here this weekend. Walt was a huge help in getting up the fence. Hopefully we will finish that project this weekend. Cheryl had a bowling tourney and enjoyed some time with the kids at Heidi & Jeff's church Spring Fling. The kids loved playing on the playground and Calvin has developed a new love of the slide. He has also been quite a stinker lately wanting down all the time and throwing quite the tantrum if he doesn't get his way.
On an absolutely awesome positive note, we are close to selling the Texas house. We got an offer over the weekend and came to an agreement on a price. We are beyond thrilled. We loved our old house, but have moved on and are excited to be fully focused on our new home. Never thought I'd be so excited to be a one home-owner.
