Some Randomness for a Monday

We've been busy around here.  The house is still on the market.  We did have a couple look at it last week, but the layout is different from what they are looking for.  We were disappointed, but we know the right buyer is out there.  Hopefully this awful weather will go away soon and spring weather will bring in more buyers. 

Spring break was the week before last.  We had a ton of fun with the boys, doing something nearly every day.  We headed to Castle Rock on Wednesday of spring break.  I'll have to post more about that later with some of the underwater pictures we took.  Willy has the USB cord for the camera with him, so not today.  But the boys had a blast.   I took Simon to the zoo on that Tuesday while the big boys visited Grandma, and I know we did a lot more.  But right now my mind is drawing a blank.

Ethan starts soccer soon, and Colton will be starting baseball in a few weeks.  It looks to already be a busy spring, and I'm excited to see the boys play sports they really enjoy.  There's also a cub scouts camping trip coming up in April.  And Colton turns EIGHT next month.  How is it that eight years have passed since I became a momma to that wonderful blonde boy?

Simon is Simon.  He is as stubborn as ever, but full of laughs and smiles.  He brings me books all day long so we can read together.  I love his love for books.  We've had to tape the binding of three books this past week.  All three of them were favorites of the big boys.  Taped bindings equals much love in this house.  He also is all about anything with animals.  I could call him obsessed sometimes.

Here are a few pictures from the past couple of weeks:
I was asked to go with Ethan's class to see Dinosaur Train Live last week.  We had so much fun!

Willy's birthday was last week.  We celebrated with dinner at Rib Crib on Tuesday.  And again on his birthday with his favorite meal at home and ice cream cake.

Ethan has "found his balance" on the skateboard.  He has been working really hard to be able to ride it.  I love his determination.

I'm still here...

It's been way too long since I've posted.  I've sat down and started FOUR different posts, only to stop mid-way and never finish them.  We're doing great.  We're super busy with school and snow days left and right.  I'm chasing Simon everywhere, and the sound of his feet through my house just melts my heart.  Here's some tidbits from our past month.

We have put our house on the market.  We really, really want to move to a bigger house with land around it.  With three boys, we need the room for them to run and explore.  We have found a house out in Rogersville that has our hearts.  It just feels like home to us. Now we're just waiting for ours to sell so we can buy it.  Happy thoughts and prayers for a quick sell are very much appreciated right now.

Simon is 17 months old now, going on 2 years old.  He is pretty sure he can do anything the big boys can do, and he tries most of the time.  He is pretty sure the universe revolves around him.  He loves to be on the lap of whoever is talking at any time.  His transition to a toddler bed has been more than I could ever have hoped for.  He goes right to sleep when we put him down.  And he stays in his bed until we come in when he wakes up.  We are also forming a pretty good grip on his allergies.  I feel so much better about them all.  I found an Easter bunny for him this morning.  Love the internet!  I hope to start posting some of our allergy friendly recipes soon.  I really want to share some of the awesome things we have found for him.

The big boys are doing great in school.  Spring break starts today and I am so excited for the fun days we have planned here and there.  And I am incredibly grateful the warmth of spring has finally decided to arrive.  Colton is doing great with cub scouts, and Ethan is preparing to play soccer.  Spring is going to be busy around here also.

I have taken on a 20 Challenge with Scentsy.  My goal is to promote to Director by the end of June.  I KNOW it's possible.  I'm  working pretty hard right now to jump into it right.  Let me know if you want to help by hosting a party.  There's some pretty amazing benefits right now for hostesses.

Here are a few pictures from February.  Can't close without posting a few.
