belly ache

The kids have all been struck with the stomach bug that’s going around :(
Judson has started to feel better. He had it the worst and missed 2 days of school last week. Judson also missed the April Fools Day race. That was a big bummer for him, he had been looking forward to it since he ran in last years race. New shoes were all ready to run too...

Natalie and Tucker started getting sick last night so they did alot of sleeping today.

Russ picked up to days of overtime and avoided us all. (Smart Man!)

This was s"crap" weekend. I saw the girls just for a bit this time. I was able to get a bunch of sewing done today during all the napping. I really missed all the fun chit chatting though.
I must remind my kids that it is not nice to be sick on weekends that mom has plans!

Hope that you all had a fun and healthy weekend!!!!

Here's some crafty things I made Nat this week :)

Spring is in the air....

{I wrote this a couple days ago and never published it.....spring, yeah right! we had snow today!!!}

....just not very warm air!

We are very happy to see the snow melting. I am ready to send some kids out to play {minus the boots and snowsuits and hats and mitten....}

But spring means....

-mud(like I have never swept my floor before kinds of messes, all over)

-sinus headaches (better than shoveling snow)

-almost t-ball time and MOST importantly.......


Russ has been tilling and as I said yesterday the onions have been planted. Getting them in this early really does make a big (literately) difference!

The kids had fun with the follow project. We have a new addition to our garden prep goodies. This was a gift and its pretty neat. It has a wicking mat to keep the soil consistently moist. So cool!

The kids had a blast making the little pods grow into dirt :) And they didn’t even make a mess! Judd did squirt Russ with water once. It was funny and it just might have been my idea ;)

*Notice our spring curtins are now up. Easter colors really don't match our house, but Nat is in love!
Tucker was sneezing :)
I love how Judd sticks his tongue out when he is concentrating!
