Palm Sunday

 Palm Sunday- the kids brought palm branches down and sang "Hosanna" today- we dressed up and got ready to go.  Daddy taught Sunday School and preached today.  And then he crashed- or tried to take a rest until everyone jumped on.

Louisville Getaway

 A few weekends ago, we went to Louisville to accompany the youth on a trip to a conference at Southern Seminary.  We also stayed an extra night and spent time together visiting sweet friends and our dear church in Louisville.  My parents came to watch the kids and it was so refreshing to be together.

Free Ice Cream

 Last Monday we took advantage of the first day of Spring Free Ice Cream deal at Dairy Queen, one of my favorite spots.  We had to drive a little ways in the pouring rain but we made it!  And it was worth it- we picked up our friend Grace to go with us and met another friend and her son for a few minutes before they had to leave.

Running a Marathon...

So I am not literally running a marathon at 32 weeks pregnant but I feel like I am each day!  :)  We are heading down the home stretch this last trimester and trying to work really hard to get a lot done before the babe comes- finishing school, working on the apartment across the hall, painting, bringing meals to others who are hurting, doing dishes, cleaning, getting kids dressed and redressed and bathed and the list goes on.  The season feels full especially for Michael as he is juggling a lot right now.  We are relying on God's grace for each day in these two months and I am so thankful for cool spring breezes lifting my thoughts to heaven! 
 Crazy crew- 6, 4 and 2- about to get crazier...

 We saw one of the last shows of the circus.  It was quite riveting.  Jeremiah liked the lady being shot from the cannon.  Lydia liked the tigers and the princesses as she put it.

 My parents got the kids Picasso Tiles for their birthday.  It has been a great gift as even little Josiah loves building with them!

Josiah Birthday

The weekend before Josiah's birthday, we took our little annual winter getaway trip for birthday month.  Instead of going overnight, we went to the YMCA to swim which was free that Friday evening and then in the morning, Michael found a Groupon to Entertrainment Junction.  We love trains! 

We did play pin the fin on the shark! 

For Josiah's birthday, we had a calm evening at home with little cupcakes and opening of a few presents.  A sweet friend took Josiah by himself to the Aquarium so he could enjoy some of the sights and sounds of the deep blue.
