Where has the time gone? It is hard to believe that we are just weeks from the end of the school year, and my precious little ones are showing me around their classrooms and singing in their spring program. Wow! Andrew and Kat got all duded up to sing while Anika sat with us as a "recently graduated out of the elementary school program" audience member. We were still able to enjoy a visit to her classroom to see the impressive "classroom city" project.

|Finally a decent picture with Mrs. H. (Kat refused to smile nicely with Mrs. Huisken at the beginning of the year so it was nice to try again!).|

Please excuse the long post, but we had such a picturesque time on the coast that I couldn't resist sharing it with you. Our spring break was a bit different this year as I was teaching, so we were only able to get away for an overnight. However, the week was filled with magical moments: dinner and conversation with good friends, playtime with neighbors, a backyard movie bash, and our trip to visit the USS Hornet and 17 mile drive.
|Seeing the sea lions and bird on Bird Rock was a highlight.|

In the midst of the kids' birthday celebrations, we have to celebrate dad, too. Lloyd gained another year with a couple of celebrations. We enjoyed some wonderful Baskin Robbins ice cream on his birthday and then he shared a cake (as he shares his birthday) with our friend and neighbor, Clara.

And. . . more birthday!!! Andrew turned 8 this year and he was very insistent on a football cake. Since the Niners were in the playoffs, it seemed appropriate to shout out to our local team. When I saw this little football launcher it seemed like a no brainer to give our active little boy an active birthday cake. He was surprised and delighted -- and we had to launch the football over the candles, of course. He had his first sleepover with four friends. They were even asleep by midnight!!!
It is the birthday time of year again! Our little girl is TEN. Wow! Where has the time gone. It is hard to believe that this young lady made us parents a decade ago. She was so excited about her KitKat cake, her friends, and a special double-digit visit to John's Incredible Pizza.
|Besties! Such a great group of wonderful girls!|
Just a month late. . . Here are some pictures from our Christmas break. (Unfortunately, there are any of Lloyd - so tragic!)
|I liked this monster truck:-)|
