Soccer Girl

Tessa participated in the "mini-kickers" soccer program this Spring.  For the first time, she actually enjoyed an organized sport/activity!  I think she had a lot of fun...but she has already said that she doesn't want to do it again, because it was "too much hard work."  Oy!


A Spring Day at the Park

Can you guess which child is most willing to have photos taken?

Easter Sunday

We had a great Easter Sunday! Beautiful weather and fun with friends.

Alyse cracks me up in this picture.  Have you ever seen a child so excited about a book!? The Easter Bunny brought them each a new kite, books, pjs, a small toy and of course, candy! 
It didn't take Tessa long to find her favorite. 
  The Easter Bunny also left eggs all over our backyard!  So many yummy treats!
Checking out their loot.

Quick pic of all three together before church. 

After church we headed over to our former neighbors' house.  The kids miss each other so much, and had a blast playing and hunting more eggs!

Searching, searching...

Three pretty girls!

Peek-a-boo!  Happy Easter!

Easter Egg Hunt

The kids love a good Easter Egg Hunt!  They were a little disappointed with the smaller number of eggs this year, but we still had fun, and we brought Grandma along this year too!

 Tessa really wanted her picture taken next to these yellow flowers. 

 There she goes, lovin' on that bunny again!

 Like her outfit?  She picked out her socks and shoes all by herself. 

 Cookie inspection in progress:


Easter Fun

For the 2nd year in a row, we joined our friends at a fun little Easter party for pre-schoolers.  Lots of crafts, games, prizes, lunch and a visit with the Bunny himself!

Amelia and Alyse - snackin' and craftin'.  Mostly snackin'.
 Posing with Will.
 Miss Tessa...always a fan of the Easter Bunny.  Alyse...not so much.
 She tried sooo hard....to no avail.

Spring Helpers

We have thoroughly enjoyed our outside time this spring! 

This little one is still obsessed with books, and insists on bringing them outside with her. 

While little sister was reading, Tessa got right to work helping me plant some spring flowers.  She can be such a good helper (when she wants to be)!

She eventually even recruited some help from Alyse and a neighbor friend!

Then it was time for a rest and some girl talk.
