A Week Around Here

This post is all over the place, but that is what our weeks are like most of the time!

Puzzles don't seem to get as much play as they used to around here, but recently we worked on some geography puzzles.

It was nice to have some good weather this week (but it's COLD today)!!!  It's amazing how much happier, brighter, and friendlier everything seems when the sun is shining and we aren't all bundled up.

The kids have been playing outside.

We are back to our routine of walking to school.

After a rainy evening, we found lots of worms on the way to school one day this week.  Collin was happy to pick them up, and Reagan also held them but would squeal and jump around when they moved in her hand!

Collin has been learning about the branches of government.  Reagan's class is learning about the solar system, and they had a field trip to the high school planetarium earlier this week.  Tyler started driving school this month - YIKES; I attended the mandatory parent program last night and I was surprised by how much has changed when it comes to the rules of the road!

Activities are keeping us busy!  Tyler made the varsity tennis team for the high school.  Collin is playing Farm League baseball; his team is the Braves.  Reagan will dance (ballet, tap, jazz, and Irish Step) in her fourth recital in June.  We also have piano, swimming lessons, driving school, and gymnastics.

This article was in the Spectator on Wednesday; Tyler's coach had some nice things to say about him:

Collin and Reagan are on their way to the airport with Grandpa Jim and Grandma Susan.  They are going to Fort Myers for a few days.  I'm sure they will have a great time; I look forward to hearing all about it!

Kate has been a fan of the song Baby by Justin Bieber for a while.  That's what happens when you have a big sister that is a Bieber fan!  Here is Kate doing her rendition of the song; it's very short and it will make you laugh:

You all are so busy! That's great that Tyler made Varsity. What a nice article too. Yikes about driving class! What has changed?

I am so bummed, we were supposed to be going to Fort Myers next week, but my in-laws canceled on us. I'm not sure when we can go now :(

That video is precious!!
I can't believe how well she talks!
All my kids don't say a word until 2...yet, Rex is jabbering a ton! Maybe he will shake it up a bit around here!
Your week sounds like mine...except I didnt squeeze in a puzzle...even though I looked for a good one this week. I love putting puzzles together as a family, and we haven't done that in a very very long time!
Both of my girls play tennis too! :)
We really should be neighbors...we could party together, and carpool! :)
