his heart; he gently leads those that have young."

April......what a blur!

April Fool's Day saw us at this enormous airport once again. Sadly the trip was so entirely uneventful that I have very little to write about.;)
The kids and I had booked on Delta and Kent was on United. Thankfully Kent asked what it would cost to add Naomi to his flight and we found it to be well worth the $70. They even upgraded him to Economy Plus. I can't believe what a difference this made in my flight. I only had the "big" kids. No pacing with a fussy baby. I even got to watch a movie and eat my meal this time!
April 3rd brought us Moriah Jane's 7th birthday. Sadly I was not very consistent with the camera in this month. Here are a few pics of her birthday breakfast though.

A fun card from Aunt Vee
An apron made by Oma and Opa!
The next day was Easter. Mom and Nicky made a big Birthday/ Easter brunch extravaganza. It was beautiful and lovely and tasty! You'll just have to trust me on that one. Thankfully Mom took a whole heap of pictures. Maybe I will get them and post them sometime.

Not sure when these pics of Naomi were taken. I think however that it had something to do with chocolate ice cream

April 17-23 brought us Kent's folks all the way from Wisconsin. Sadly I didn't take a single shot during there visit. Activities included, eating out, church, a trip to the History Museum and Downtown, buying(from craigslist)and fixing up BMX bikes for the boys(thanks Opa and Oma), and many other things.

And as if life was not crazy enough around here we decided to add a dog to the mix. We got "Jack" from the Flanagan's. He is a 7 month old Golden Retriever. He is really Moriah's gift and she has been faithfully feeding and cleaning up after him. Maybe I will take a picture sometime.

Saturday the 24th Mom, Vee and I took Nicky out for an early 30th birthday trip. She chose Seattle. Uncle Kent was up for the challenge of watching all 9 children. Yeah. We had fun. Never did get a shot of all of us together. Oh Well. We ended the evening with a yummy Italian meal. Happy "early" Birthday Nick!

A stop in Sur la Table

Somewhere in there we got some homeschooling and housework done too.

This past Monday Kent came home from work and said they wanted him to go to Bothell for some training on fire systems. I made some phone calls and found a way to go along. Aunt Nicky, Aunt Vee, Grandma and Grandpa all took turns watching the kids.
Now let me say that there is not alot to do in Bothell which was fine with me. I did some grading, sat in the hot tub, got a haircut, watched some HGTV, went out to Dinner and watched a movie with Kent, Woke up and vegged some more, then went to a cute little day spa and had my first manicure, a pedicure and a facial. Let's just say I did a WHOLE lot of relaxing. What an unexpected blessing. Thank you to all who made that possible!
Once again no pics. Sorry.

Now, I wonder what May will bring?


  1. Wow, maybe May will bring a little rest. Although, I am not sure much could top your time of rest in Bothell. Sounds like a fun little time away.

  2. Wow. How are you still sane?! You are an amazing momma, Bree. Way to keep your cool with so much going on all the time! I don't deal so well with change and don't think I could keep up with you guys! I'm amazed.
