More Spring Fun

In the spring I went to the Heart at Home conference again this year, which I love! It's a "Moms Conference", but you get to hear a lot of great speakers and bond with other moms. It is a lot of fun. This year, it was a bit stressful leading up to the conference and I was feeling like I shouldn't go because it was just getting to be too much. My wonderful husband really insisted that I go and then sent me flowers to my hotel! What a great guy! It was another great experience and I am so glad I went. Thank you Paul!!
We had some fun outside with the great weather.  The boys loved playing soccer together in our back yard, which warms my heart!
And we made a fire in our fire pit and tried out some of the camping gear that Paul got for Christmas this year.  The kids loved the new marshmallow sticks, which were also used to cook hot dogs over the fire - how fun!
Of course we later used those sticks to make smores.  Good job Matthew!
Juliette's Daisy troop took a field trip to Feed My Starving Children to do some service.  It is an organization that packs meals and ships them to countries fighting poverty.  When we were there, we packed meals being sent to Haiti.  It was a really great experience.  The girls had a lot of fun, learned a lot, and walked away feeling great.  We will definitely be back!
What a great group of Daisy's!
Selfie with my girls.
Ben drew this amazing picture in school.  They were each assigned a station of the cross during Lent and this is what he did - amazing!
Just a cute picture of my baby relaxing on the couch watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse - his favorite show!
When the girls were little and Abbey was in a toddler bed and Juliette was in a crib, Abbey used to climb into Juliette's crib so they could sleep together.  I have so many pictures of the two of them asleep in the crib.  They still sleep together!  They would do it a lot more, but we limit them to non-school nights to make sure they are getting good sleep during the week.  Sometimes though, they still sneak into each other's beds after being tucked in to comfort each other and I find them like this when I go to check on them before I go to bed.  It's so sweet.
We went to the spring choir concert to hear Abbey sing!
Matthew just loves to be outside.  He loved to go on walks or play with outside toys.
