Track season is officially over. For his 7th grade year Trey ran the mile and the 800 meter distance. He wanted to stay away from the sprinting because that was harder on his knees.

He did a great job!

 His fastest mile time this season was 6:11 and his fastest 800m was 2:50. Fantastic job Trey! We are proud of you!

 His last 800m of the season he caught three of his buds and they all finished together. He has one more physical therapy session tomorrow for his knees and then we will go just on an as needed basis. He had a little more flexibility the last visit because of all the stretches so hopefully tomorrow will be some improvement as well.

Loved cheering him on on the sidelines and can't wait to do it many more times in the future!

Our "babies" playdate

My sister and i took advantage of some beautiful weather to take our "babies" to Deana Rose Farmstead. We are both sending off our youngest to kindergarten next year so our free days with them will soon come to an end. It seems like just yesterday we were doing these kinds of things with our oldest kids when they were little and if i looked back i would probably have very similar pictures of the older ones with their cousins.

Brooklyn and Raegan are pretty good buds and can't wait to hang out at the pool this summer but for now they were practicing up their driving skills...

 they each took a pony ride which might just have inspired Raegan to request a pony the next day!

 Number one on her want to do list was to feed the baby goats their bottles. They were in a different pen so they were able to feed them from outside the fence.

 We then moved on to the larger goats...not the largest but larger. I snapped this picture after yanking Raegan back up off the ground when the goats all jumped on her and knocked her to the ground. She was still wiping her hands off and it didn't even seem to phase her.She did not get that from her mother, i was ready to get out of the pen!

 love these two sweeties!

After picking out some candy from the General store we called it a day!

Blog much?

Blogging has very obviously taken a bit of a backseat lately for me. I just can't seem to get them done. So to update a little on what's been happening in our lives lately...

Trey has been going to physical therapy and seems to be doing a little better with the knee pain. Some days are worse than others. He is finishing up his track season with his two final meets this week and next. He runs the mile and the 800 meter. I will do his own post with pictures later.  He is also playing basketball again and they are doing really well. He recently just endured what he thought might be the worst punishment ever. We took him to the Christian book store and picked out a book that he had to read and then do a book report on. is attitude has been amazing the last couple of weeks :)

Avery is not a morning person to say the least! This is how everyone is at the table in the mornings!

 Avery was thrilled to find out that her transfer request was approved this past Friday! After calling and checking on it since we hadn't heard anything we found out it had disappeared somewhere along the line so we had to start the whole process over. They expedited the process and were so king to actually call me last Friday to let me know that it had been approved instead of us having to wait till this week for the letter in the mail. She is super excited to head on to middle school with her friends. We are thankful for this answer to prayer. We didn't know for sure how he would answer it but are pleased with the outcome!

John celebrated his 38th birthday on Friday. since i was running the next morning we celebrated on Saturday night gorging ourselves at The Outback and spending the night on a little getaway to a hotel for the night. That cheesecake by the way was the yummiest cheesecake i have had in a long time!

I am trying to keep up with my calendar! It seems the closer to the end of school we get, the more things are filling up the calendar! Summer break is just around the corner but first we have lot's of things to attend, accomplish, finish up, study for, sign...the list goes on and on! The pool is calling my name!!

Easter 2012

Working till at least 12:30 am Saturday nights makes for a pretty sleepy and sometimes grumpy mama on Sunday mornings. I quickly determined our normal pictures before church just were not a good idea and decided we would get them later!

After enjoying an amazing Sunday service we decided to stop by a park that is right by our church and snap some pictures...

the kids were mostly cooperative...they are learning to give in to mom's picture taking sessions and i think they know the more they cooperate the sooner it will be over!

these hanging from a tree pictures were totally the kids idea...i always knew they belonged in the zoo!

After church we went out to Grandpa and Grandma Seaba's for lunch and egg hunt

gave the little ones a 30 second head start

some of the eggs had money in them...the kids love candy but let me tell ya they were on the hunt for the eggs with money!

and then it was time to check out all the loot!

Hope you had a Happy Easter!
