A Lucky Day at Preschool...

Today Parker's preschool class celebrated St. Patrick's Day! 
They all had to wear green and even got to enjoy a special rainbow snack:)
They also know that a sneaky little leprechaun likes to show up each year and have a little fun with them! Parker said he was SO EXCITED about today:) 
The leprechaun came and he did some really silly things to their classroom! They tried to catch him, but just like last year...he got away!
Maybe next time...

Celebrations, Seussical, and SNOW!

Here is a little of what's been going on in our life this week...
Jake just wrapped up another season of basketball. This year was extra fun because his buddy Hayden was able to play on the same team as him! Thursday night the team enjoyed supper together and celebrated their great season!
Friday night my big kids and I met up with some friends of ours for a fun night out. We went to their house for a pizza party and then saw "Seussical the Musical" at the local high school. 
What a fun show to see! We loved it!
Saturday night we did a little celebrating with my family. My sister and I always celebrate our birthdays together because they are just a few weeks apart! It's always a good time when we're all together!
Sunday morning we woke up to SNOW falling!!! After an unseasonably warm winter, getting snow was a big surprise!
 It was so pretty coming down, but didn't last long at all.
 I took the kids out after church to play for a few minutes, but by the afternoon everything was gone!
Sissy and I built this little snowman out of what was left. 
He's the last bit of winter fun in our yard:)

A Field Trippin' Kind of Week

This week both of my big kids had school field trips!
Matt took the day off of work and joined Sis on her field trip! They were off to enjoy a day at Discovery Place together! One of our favorite places!
 They enjoyed several of the exhibits that we normally get to see....
But also got to participate in a teaching time and learn all about rain forests!
They loved their special time together and even stopped for a pizza lunch on the way home!
I got to join Jake on his class field trip later on in the week. We went to a really cool place that I have been wanting to visit! It is called Atomz Lab. It's a fun science place!
It is not a very big place, but it is definitely packed with TONS of science fun!
The kids learned SO much from the instructor and then got to participate in many hands on science activities! They loved it!
It was definitely a fun week of learning!
