Spring is here!

Two days from today, but who's counting?! Spring is my favorite season, and I'm so excited for the warmer weather and sunshine. Hopefully we'll have some nice weather this coming week, as the kids and I just started spring break. I'm looking forward to cleaning & some yard work. The garden needs some TLC as well as the rest of the yard. I noticed today that some of my daffodils in the front yard have already bloomed! I've got to get out tomorrow and get some pictures of them.

This past winter we spent several weekends at swim meets with Lenae, as well as on the hard court watching Ryan play basketball for the first time. Lenae did great, and even qualified for divisionals in the 50 fly. She was pretty excited, but I think Kerry and I were more excited for her! Ryan had fun at bball, but he really needs to get some height on him. He joined McPherson Strikers for the spring and is enjoying his new soccer team. He seems to do better at soccer. I think being on the smaller side in soccer isn't as much of a handicap as it is in bball. So far all of his sport experiences have been rec league, so, I am looking forward to watching him play his first game in a "real" uniform.

Kerry is running for city commission this year. He's been doing a radio show each Wednesday. I haven't been able to listen since I'm busy teaching when he's on the air. He's told me that he's heard good feedback from his friends. I know he really wants to get in and make a difference. It's so the opposite of me. I like to fade into the background if at all possible. Give me a room full of kids and I'm great. Put me in a room full of adults and I would just die! Funny how that works.
