Welcome Home Jake!

My brother came home from his mission in Ghana, Africa on Wednesday. All of the family went to St. George for the weekend to see him. It was so nice to see everyone and to finally see Jake. He had his homecoming on Sunday it was so neat to hear him report his mission. He has grown so much and you could tell that he loved his mission. It is so good to have him home!

Little League Day at Turner Field

Broden's Baseball team went to the Braves game and got to participate in the parade on the field. He had so much fun and Bill and I got so much sun!!!

The boys loved the game and thought it was so cool they got to go on the field!

I feel lucky because...

Every day I walk to the bus stop to meet Broden after school, and the same conversation happens each time. How was your day? Do you have homework? Did you bring your reading book home? When we get home I always go through his papers, I love to look at his work. I am amazed how smart he is. ha ha (proud mom moment) Yesterday this was one of his papers, I took a picture but I don't think you can read it so I re-typed it. I thought it was so sweet.

There are a lot of ways that make me lucky. I feel lucky because I have great parents. They take good care of me. I feel lucky because I have a great teacher because she takes really good care of us. I feel lucky because I have great friends. I have great friends because they are really nice to me. I am lucky for my family. My

family takes care of me and loves me. These are all the things that make me lucky.

My attempt to a "Green Thumb"

If you know me well you know I am not an outdoors girl. but I do love Spring. I love how the trees bloom and the beautiful colors of all the flowers. So I attempted to plant some flowers in our front yard. Now I just hope I can keep them alive!

Our Low Key Spring Break!

We stayed home this year since Broden and I are going to Utah on the 23rd for my brothers Homecoming. The week started off with bad weather and me being sick on Monday. Tuesday we went and saw Horton Here's a Who! Wednesday we went to feed the ducks, but they were not that hungry which I am sure is from kids feeding them all week.:)Thursday we went and saw Nim's Island.

An exciting thing this week is Broden starting to learn to ride his bike. He has never had an interest in learning so I was so excited that he is wanting to learn. He is still nervous so it is a slow process.

Braves Opening Day!!!

Bill bid and won tickets at Broden's school auction for opening day. We went with our friends John and Mary Ann. They are HUGE Pirates fans so they were excited to go with us. It was a great game, it went into extra innings and the Pirates won 12 to 11!
