We had a fairly uneventful spring break last week. I was sick a good part of it and dealt with allergies the second half, so I wasn't highly motivated to do a lot. We did have fun around the house and took the kids out to eat and to the park one night, we had such wonderful weather they spent lots of time outside.
The kids all geared up to go riding. Elijah was especially excited about wearing his jersey from Christmas! We've got several motocross items from families that like to ride at our place. When their kids out-grow something they pass it on to us, as a thank-you for letting them ride here! It works out great for us, and keeps the riding cost down.
Elijah so cute, nice boots! :)
Ethan had a friend over one day, and a cousin too. The little boys played well with them and Amelia was able to spend the night at a friends house, which was very fun for her.
I found an easy experiment on Pinerest that Amelia wanted to do. It's just covering an egg with vinegar for a couple days and the shell will dissolve. In the video the guy was kind of "bouncing" the egg without a shell, so Amelia thought she would try and it broke. She was told to clean it up. So she tried getting the cats to eat it, but didn't have any takers so she ended up using the hose to wash the sidewalk. :)
Mark finally filled in the 10 foot deep hole in the front yard. Hopefully now our basement won't leak and someday we can finish it for kids to have more space!
Anton will play in any dirt he can find! Yes, this is a plant filled with equipment! :)
Allison cracks me up, when she's happy she sticks her tongue in and out like a snake. Not the most flattering picture, but it's funny to watch her!
You may have noticed Anton wearing his church clothes in an earlier picture while everyone else is in old stuff. That's because he only wants to wear his PJ's or this blue stripped sweater or a combo of church/PJ's as in the above picture. He's so funny and insists on wearing that sweater all the time! He is always talking about going to church and "reading" the Bible. He'll look at the Bible and say numbers, "verses" like 3,9,9,9... Maybe we'll have a future career in the ministry with this one. :)
