Spring is here and in full swing! We have prepared the garden for another growing season, with potatoes already in the ground and loving the rain we are getting....water for free! Am planning what we are going to plant around the house (flowers-wise) and have the vegetable garden all mapped out. Should be a busy spring once it warms up more.
Matthew is finally over whatever it was that was making him so sick. Never did find out what he had, but we are happy that he is back to normal. Soccer went well (when he wasn''t ill) and he learned more...i.e.: you can kick a ball better when you are on your feet instead of your knees or back. He is looking forward to baseball this summer, having already taken some of his spending money and a gift card he got for his birthday and buying a new bat and some new baseballs. Looks like mom needs to look for some cleats.
Kara''s vocabulary has exploded this month...."cookie, puppy, hi, hello, bye-bye, Daddy, Mom, Allie, stinky, baby, kitty, please (EEEEEEEZE!), thank you (um-mum), shoe"...those are the ones I can remember right now. She''s following all sorts of directions and is now climbing on anything she can. The warmer weather has made her hard to keep indoors.
Allie hasn''t changed much since last writing...just busy playing, pretending, reading, drawing, and going to school.
We bought a newer van....looks just like the white one only it''s longer, has a 4th door, and is maroon. We kept the white one so Eric has something to drive with better gas mileage. Hopefully, the truck will be sold soon. It''s really on it''s last leg. Eric has toyed with the idea of keeping it, however, in order to have something to do yard work, etc. with.
The half bath off the kitchen is finished. Just need to put the new door on. Looks nice with a new toilet, fixtures, floor, walls, and sink. It''s a whole new room. The kitchen has some odds and ends left (painting of trim and threshold installation), but we are pleased with the end product.
I have started a 2nd job for an occupational therapist in the same building as the surgeon I work for. It''s really flexible (I go in when I want to). Basically, I''m helping this guy get his business off the ground by streamlining his insurance billing and accounts receivable. Have already fixed a ton of problems so he can get some better money coming in. So far, he is pleased.
We''ve been extremely busy....work, life, house, etc. More than can be written here right now. I''ll update more later when there is more time. If I don''t write before then...have a great and Blessed Easter!
