Swimming Skills

It's no secret that our kids LOVE to swim. We go as often as possible and with the rainy weather we have been going to the rec center even more just to stay active! Boo has been working on her swimming skills and is happy that she can now somersault and do a handstand in the water!

I have posted about Buster's love for sports multiple times, but it just never gets old. This boy loves both football and baseball. His memory is amazing, and he has picked up so much about these sports to be such a little guy. We love seeing him so excited!

Spring Cleaning

This week has been busy. I am finally getting around to spring cleaning, and it has been pretty intense! It is amazing what can be accumulated in a year! We have also been working on small maintenance projects as we go which has slowed things down considerably! It's also been extremely messy as this picture shows.

On top of all the cleaning it was also the kids last day of LEAP. They had a field day, picnic, and award ceremony. I took pictures, I just need to upload them. It has also continued to rain almost daily, and today was the sunniest it has been in a long time, until storms rolled in this afternoon.
Next week's forecast is similar, and I am getting really anxious to plant flowers! I am hoping we get some major sun soon.

More Rain!

At least there are some benefits, like these beautiful blooms on our bushes in the back yard! We are praying there is no serious flooding!

Rain, Rain, Rain

It has been raining for days. The county is under flood watch and I sincerely pray that nothing comes of it. We are all feeling a little stir crazy at this point.

Buster is making the best of it, utilizing his umbrella and boots. Until Daddy got home that is, and then he had some work to do!

Good Deals

Patience does not come easy for me. For years I have disliked thrift stores for this reason. It just seemed like a lot of work to sift through so many items, just to find a couple of good deals. However, I am trying to get better about saving money, so I have been going to the thrift store around the corner occasionally on Saturdays (half-off day) just to search a bit. Yesterday was a good deal day. I wa able to find 6 shirts for Chiggie, a pair of shirts for the King, a shirt for Tea, and an outfit for Bustet for under $30! Here Buster is, multitasking by eating cereal and modeling his new duds at the same time.
