Here is our family picture for the month of March. It was taken at the Guardian Easter Egg Hunt. Brrr it was cold! But the kids love it and received tons of fun loot.
Here are a few tidbits about our month:
The kids' rooms are driving me CRAZY! They are always a mess. How do I get them to pick them up and have a desire to keep them clean? April is going to be Operation: Clean Room month.
Craig has been traveling more for work this month. California and Texas.
I almost had a nervous breakdown this month. I registered my baby for Kindergarten and went to a meeting about my oldest starting Junior High School.
We were able to see our neighbor perform with her Show Choir and also in the school musical "Anything Goes!" Christian and Sydnee enjoyed the musical after I finished explaining that not everyones mom will wash their mouth out with soap if they say a bad word. Both of these events made me miss high school just a little bit.
We are the proud owners of a new washer and dryer. Craig and the kids' were excited to learn how to start a load in the washer and transfer it to the dryer. That excitement lasted less than 12 hours.
The kids went to the dentist. Ella found out she has 6 cavities. Why is this always so hard on the parent? I feel like a failure in the teeth-brushing department.
We went to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid on the first day of Spring Break.
Ella and Sydnee love to go to the school skating parties. Mom likes to remember her Classic Skating party days...when the skates didn't hurt her feet so much.
Christian spoke in Sacrament Meeting for the first time. His talk was on how God shows love for us and how we can show love in our families. He did a great job. We were very proud.
This month I am grateful for a healthy family. I am grateful for amazing friends who have the strength to endure hard, hard things. I feel cliche in saying that life has its ups and downs, but that is just what life is. And I guess that is what makes it worth living.
