Spring has Sprung!

On March 20th, the first day of spring, Lauren woke up in the morning said "It is spring! Where are the buds on the trees?" Well honey, it does not quite work that way although it would be nice if it did! So we did enjoy some time outside!

Where did March go? I had good intentions of keeping up a little better but I failed! Here is a fun recap!
-We removed Alex's stitches which more traumatic than getting them in!
-Alex turned 4!!!
-Claire started speech! She is doing great and is already saying more everyday!
-Lauren started Piano and passed her math test!
-I had my birthday! YUCK!
-We enjoyed celebrating Easter and that Christ has risen at church and with good friends on Sunday. It was followed by the BEST Easter egg hunt ever and now my kids will be forever disappointed if we don't have one like that every year!

Head on Collision

What Happens when two toddlers running full steam ahead run into each other? One gets a goose egg and one has to get 7 stitches. As you can see Alex got the stitches. It was our first experience and I have to say, it went well. Alex was very brave and he thought it was cool because the ER room had a picture of Peyton Manning! He was also glad that the stitches are blue..his favorite color.

I think the scary part is now until it completely heals. I am so afraid he is going to hit his head and it is going to open up. I just want to give a shout out to our awesome small group who all reacted well and took care of the girls while we went to the hospital! We are truly blessed with great friends!
