Spring Lilacs

                                                                   Fresh Lilacs

Spring has finally arrived to this part of the country and I am beyond excited about it. I love the hot days and late nights. The kids are out of school and ready for summer. The two youngest ask me daily if it is time to fill the pool. It isn't quite warm enough for that, but maybe, in a few weeks. We are looking forward to spending some time in Omaha, Denver, and Kansas City this summer. It will be nice to get out of here for a while and enjoy some other scenes.
Rachael signed up for T-ball this year and that gets us out of the house Tuesday and Wednesday nights.  Liz has been at Volleyball camp this week and picked up a summer job, babysitting for the neighbors. Brandon is working hard to save up money for his mission in 3 years. He has been working cows for a few local ranchers. And my little Christyn is busy getting dirty, playing outside all hours of the day, and refusing to ever brush her hair. I have been on a bit of a break from the crafting, until this week. My house needed some attention the last few weeks. I did start a summer smash book a few weeks back and have been putting some of our Instagram pics in there. I'm planning on finishing up the gardening this week and then I'm ready to enjoy this Memorial Day weekend. Hope it is a long weekend, because after Monday it is back to work I go.
My oldest daughter and I have been working really hard to loose weight and doing some walking everyday. Going to get in three miles today, so I better get going before it gets dark.
Hope all of you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
