easter and a break

 I am way behind on blogging, but here are a few pics from our Easter Sunday. I felt quite sad not having Sadie home, but she was in good hands with her aunt and uncle in Utah.  We didn't even take our traditional after church photo by our front door.  One of our kidos (who shall remain nameless) was quite grumpy, and it kind of rubbed off on me.  That's real life, right? 
 We did enjoy our time with Gregg's parents and my nephew Clark.  I love celebrating Easter and spring and all that it symbolizes about our Savior's resurrection. Hope is a beautiful thing. 
Gregg and I were also feeling kind of sad that our kids had outgrown the egg hunt thing.  But, Sunday afternoon Sierra announced that she and Gentry would be dying eggs (I had bought a kit earlier in the week just in case) and their enthusiasm helped me to smile.

 As I sit here typing this post, I can hear rain falling outside.  It's one of those rare, but so appreciated April showers.
 Sadie will be home in just a few weeks. I am so looking forward to spending time with her this summer.  
     And so friends, my "to do" list has required some reevaluating.  The next couple of weeks will packed.  Sadie will be preparing to submit her mission application papers and Drew and Gentry will be wrapping up their lacrosse and soccer seasons.  Then there are all the usuals...homework, laundry, dinner, and the list goes on.  And....there are some other more important things that need my attention right now. So, it's time for a blogging break.  I'll be back in a few weeks.  My family always has to come first.  Thx for reading my post....Sadie's mission call.
