And they took first again...played 10 and lost 2 by a few points.  Way to go girls!

This last week flew right by again.  I'm looking forward to spring!
We had a few eye appts, my foot getting taped again, blood tests and then 2 nights with my hubby away which was awesome and soo much fun! Date your husband it's the best thing for not only you two but for your children to see as well.  Thanks for everyone who helped with the kiddos!

Basketball, Club Volleyball and life lately...
If you want Jonah to make you a sandwich...don't worry you'll get plenty  of meat.

 Can you feel the excitement for new pacifiers.  Trying to get this guy to give them up and it's not working. He tends to chew  holes in them so it's a good time to do it.

 Soda, steaks, Kombucha, baked goods, chips, subs, great festival finds for the kids.

my 3 big boy stars

Biology class 1st dissection.   It went great.  The little stars were quite interested in the whole process.

 Jeremiah is done with basketball and loved it.  Thank you coaches for a fun time!


Olivia's club volleyball league in Manitowoc had their first (12 year old and under) tournament in Waukesha this past weekend.  Left at 5 am and got home at 7ish.  Looong day.  They played 14 games and lost 2 by just a few points.  They had 8 teams play in that bracket.  They all did such a wonderful job. So stressful on the bleachers!!



Neck and neck every point for the first place title.  This was the game point.  
So exciting.  They took 1st place.
Way to go Lakeshore Storm

We graduated  from the small fruit bowl to the big fruit bowl.  Trying to keep up with the eating in this house.  
So thankful for healthy eaters.

Olivia and her friend made these beautiful signs.  Love how creative they are.

My little salad muncher.  He eats them every day with me.  Love it!

Have a wonderful day!
