Good Times with Old Friends

This last weekend we headed up to Clearfield to visit with some friends of Jeremy's that he's had since high school.  I loved how well our kids got a long with the other kids.  Especially considering there were only two girls: Clara and a 2 yr old!
There were 4 families represented in this picture, and we put them in order of age (from left to right):
Clara had fun building forts and being superheros with Tyler:
If Clara took her sunglasses off, she would spray mustard out of her eyes, and if Tyler took his eye patch off, he would shoot lasers out of his eyes.

Spring Break

Clara didn't have to go to school all week.  We loved having her home!  We played outside a lot, which was wonderful.  The older kids love the bubble machine Jack got for his first birthday, too bad he's a little afraid of it....
In addition to playing out side, we got to go swimming this week.  We also got to go see Kung Fu Panda 3, and checked out lots of books from our local library. It was such a long week that all the boys fell asleep on the couch on Sunday.
I'm so looking forward to summer now!

This last week was Crazy hair day at school.  Clara wanted to make her hair look like a cat, so we put a Mr Potato Head pet in it.
Also this week, Jackson discovered that I keep a stash of cheerios in our diaper bag.  All those items behind him were moved (by him) to get at the coveted cheerios. I think it's crazy how fast he's growing up.
This semester, I've been tutoring some UVU students in their Calc class.  It's pretty rare that I get to do calculus and since they are ending the term, the problems are getting harder.  There were two problems on this review that I wasn't sure how to do, so I took a picture of the review so I could look it up for the next time they would come.  I was in heaven getting to solve these.  I forget how much I truly love math and finding solutions to problems, and I especially love then getting to explain how to do those problems to those that would otherwise be lost.  I must be crazy!  ;)
Hope your week was crazy too!

Easter Weekend

We had a very fun filled weekend.  We started the weekend with Clara's school's annual fundraiser: The Rapter Lapter!  She ran 2.25 miles in 35 minutes.  She even slowed down so that Joe could run with her most of the way!  I was sure proud to see them running together.
Since it finished close to the time of school getting out, I decided to hang out in Clara's room while they did a fund egg coloring activity.
The Easter Bunny comes on Saturdays at our house, so our kids loved getting new PJ's and a small new toy along with some candy.
Here are all the kids in their Easter PJ's.  Although Joe insists that his are not pajamas, the are clothes!!!
And here is Batman all ready to fight some bad guys.
Saturday afternoon, we got to attend Beck's baptism.  Beck is the son of one of my favorite roommates.  I love both her and her husband dearly.  They live in the Boise area, so it's been years since we've seen them.  I wish we could have visited more Angie and Carl!  Thanks for inviting us to Beck's baptism.
 Sunday brought a Beck Family get together where we celebrated Jack's First Birthday!
We had a wonderful Easter Weekend, I hope you did too!
